Saving the tobacco crop
Who would have thought that tobacco would be cultivated at Rathmoylan in Co. Waterford? We believe that a Mrs William O'Brien commissioned this photo…
Thanks to OwenMacC for providing the location of Rathmoylan House (with local confirmation from ofarrl). And delighted to see one of the people in the photograph being identified - that's Peter Power sitting in the front row at extreme right. Again we have local information from ofarrl to thank for this, via a relative of Peter Power's on the Waterford Heritage Group's FB page.
