18 Abercorn Road - Former home of Sean O'Casey

We asked a local politician Maureen O'Sullivan TD to help with this photo and I am happy to report that she has Identified all the kids for us. From left to right we have - Catherine Byrne, Helen Boyle, Rose Byrne, Elaine Kane, Imelda Redmond and Ann Byrne. The boys are the Ryan Twins. The photo was taken around 1970. Ringing the people identified and date established bells now!

 

Sharon Corbet quickly identified the location as 18 Abercom Road in East Wall, Dublin, former home of Sean O'Casey and his family in the early 1900's - so that means we get to ring our special hat trick bell - location identified also!

 

Apropos of nothing at all this is photograph number 1,400 on the stream.
