Photograph taken at Raheen House 1915

Post by pjaminog » Wed Jan 05, 2011 10:23 pm

This photograph was in my fathers house in Tuamgraney . About 10 years ago I made a copy of it and asked my father who was app. 90 years old at the time, to give me its background. He thought that it was taken circa 1915; it was taken in front of Raheen House Tuamgraney and shows Edward McLysaght and staff.
From memory he tried to identify the people in the photograph, bearing in mind that he was a child when he would have last seen many of those people, he was not certain an made a guess re some and could not identify others.
I wish to post this photograph with the names as give by my father; somebody may know the people and make corrections or fill in blanks?

I really appreciate the opportunity to view the photograph, which has such a historical context. I can't help with further identification but I do want to expand a bit on one of those present, Conor Clune (No. 21). Poor Conor not only was just about out of the picture but his future also became one of being in the wrong place, which is how he came to be executed.
The story and a close-up photo is at this link:

Hi
I am attaching a few photographs which may be of interest. I also have a copy of the photgraph previously posted which I am reposting as it clearly shows Conor Clune.

My Grandfather is James (Jim) Mulready - number 36 in the original listing. I didn't realise there were other Mulreadys in the photo so it was great to find that out.

I'm also attaching 2 photos which, from what I can see, contain many of the same faces and appear to be taken on front of Raheen house also.

Padraig from this forum very kindly told me that they are the its a group photograph of members of the Clare Battalion of the Irish Volunteers taken circa 1914.

If anyone has any more information I'd be love to hear it.

thanks!

The car registration logs are interesting resource, you can also look up the motorbike featured in two of the pictures. TI 56

Do you know if Clare CO CO have a similar resource ?

Thanks

I hope that the Clare car registration details have survived, but I have not found them online. Perhaps if you repeat the query in a new thread someone from the County Library or Archives will spot it and come up with an answer.
