Do you remember this photo from last week which some people thought might be a teachers' dance? Not so, says my better informed correspondent.
Beta (Whelan) O'Brien writes as follows:
"…. it was a Fianna Fail Dance held in the Astor Cinema/ballroom in 1951 We have identified most of the group.
Front Row: Bridie Murphy Greenville ? Mary Whelan Joan Curtin Betty Leahy Doreen OConnor
Second Row: Mr Scannell ? Margaret Whelan Mrs Hannan Peggy and John OConnor
Third Row: Mrs Halpin Ella Corridan Lil Walsh Miss Stack NT last in row not identified
Fourth Row: Mrs JK OConnor Mrs Louis Murphy Teresa and Eddie Hanrahan Ballylongford Eilish OSullivan ?
Back Row: ** ** John Joe Mc Elligott ? Peggy Hickey Marie OHara Mc Auliffe Phil Quigley Chute"
Thank your , Beta.

Kerry for the holidays
My grandchildren love to spend time in Listowel.
The playground in the town park is one of their favourite haunts.
All three girls absolutely love books. They are all members of three libraries. They were thrilled skinny to be involved in the launch of the super National Children's Literary Festival which will run in conjunction with Listowel Writers' Week 2014.
