Scenes from the July Horse Fair in Market Street


Pres. Girls in the 1950s

This old photo has set ladies of a certain age talking.  I had forgotten that I had posted it twice already. Marie Neligan who originally sent the photo has named most of the girls as best she remembers them.

Back row: Eleanor Leahy, Eileen Barrett,    ?      , Celia Carroll, Rose Healy Fitzmaurice, ? Walsh,   Marie Neligan,   Doreen Stack, Nora O'Keefe. ?

Middle row: Kathleen Fitzgerald,    ?, Margaret Sheehan, Mary ?,    Phyllis Horgan, Kathleen Dunworth,   ? Beasley, Kathleen O'Keefe,  Cathy Mae Leahy, Maeve Maloney, ? Murphy.

Front row: Nora Barry,  Margaret Horgan, ?,   Noreen Mahoney,  Geraldine Reidy (visitor from the USA)   Patsy Hartnett,   Marie Buckley, Terry Buckley, Dympna Carroll.

The nun is Sr. Dympna 

These are the girls as Marie Neligan remembers them and she estimates the year as 1953/54.

Helen O'Connor added this back in May.   "My sister, Delia Walsh, 6th from Top L – beside Marie Nelligan (sender of photo).  Delia married Peter Spellman and lives in Manchester.  Her grown up family lives there too. Delia and her husband come home every year to Listowl/Ballybunion.  She remembers most of her class in picture but doesn’t know where they are now. 
Eileen Barrett (neighbour of Delia Walsh), 2nd top from L married Connie Leahy and continued living in Listowel, but unfortunately died a few years ago."
