Here’s another one of the souvenir photographs from a Castleisland area publicans day trip.
This one, I’m sure, is the Guinness brewery in Dublin and it was taken in December 1964 as it’s so marked on the back.
There may be a few more blanks in this one compared with the Smithwicks photograph of the other day.
As with that photograph, Sheila Prendiville got a sheet of paper and added the names whenever she got a bit of spare time.
There is a 1998 date on the back of the caption sheet as it’s an official delivery docket.
The majority of the names are legible and I have transcribed them here.
Can We Fill in the Blanks ?
However, as you’d expect from a photograph of this age, there are some blanks and this is where I’m hoping my fantastic captioners will again come to my aid and we’ll manage to fill those blanks.
It’s no harm to remember that the publicans on these days out were drawn from the district and not just from the town itself.
