Besties! | by National Library of Ireland on The Commons

Have very few words to describe this photograph - overcome with the cuteness of it all, but the smallest girl and the puppy were surely besties!


We thought these two little girls may be the Quinn sisters, and it was probably taken somewhere on or near the Clonbrock Estate owned by the Dillon family in Ahascragh, Co. Galway. Thanks to DannyM8 and Niall McAuley for their census research, so that we now know these may be Ellen Quinn on the left and her sister Maggie Quinn on the right - daughters of Joseph, a gardener on the Clonbrock Estate!


Photographer: A member of the Dillon Family


Date: Circa 1903, we think


NLI Ref.: CLON860
