Clare Freeman, Sat 3 Jul 1875:
On last Tuesday the men and staff of the Royal Irish Constabulary stationed in the Abbey were called out on parade before the County Inspector. Mr Hayes of the Causeway took the opportunity to take an excellent photograph presenting the likenesses of the men and their officers.
Clare Freeman, Sat 7 Aug 1875:
We have visited the studio of Mr Hayes, who has now changed his photographic rooms from the Causeway to Brewery Lane, off Church Street, and there inspected a full sized cabinet carte of the O’Connell Monument decorated on the occasion of the O’Connell Centenary. The photograph is as well executed as anything of the kind could be, and so well are the lines and minutest things defined that the features of those who are at the moment of photographing in the act of hanging out the flags may be clearly distinguished. Combined with this, Mr Hayes has taken a photograph of the same scene on the small carte de visite style, and it is as accurately done as any picture could be. Both these pictures do Mr Hayes great credit, and will form pretty memorials of the centenary in Ennis.
