Cuteness alert!

These are the three children of a Mrs Murdoch from Kilcoran Lodge, Cahir, Co. Tipperary. No particular reason for choosing this photo other than that their cuteness score is off the charts, and the oldest girl has really compelling eyes. Love the little brother's nonchalant leaning on his big sister too.


Thanks are due to sterling work from Niall McAuley especially, and from John Spooner for investigating the later history of the Murdoch family. Niall identified Adeline Murdoch, aged 4-ish (left) and Sidney Murdoch, aged 3-ish (right). The older girl in the middle remains somewhat elusive...
