August 1, 1915

Funeral procession of Fenian Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa. Trams drew to a halt and crowds lined the streets as the coffin passed. O'Rossa had died on Staten Island on 29 June 1915, but his body was brought back to Ireland for burial in Glasnevin Cemetery. This photo was taken at Parnell Square East, or Rutland Square East as it was then known... Thanks to DaveHurley1 for the information that Seán Collins (brother of Michael) was a pall bearer at this funeral. Date: Sunday, 1 August 1915 NLI…

A very crowded Republican meeting on August 1923 in Dublin that took place on O’Connell Street, or Sackville Street as it was then. Charles Durning, Dog Day Afternoon, Journey's End, Movie Of The Week, August 19, What The World, Photographic Studio, What Is Life About, Historical Photos

August 19, 1923

A very crowded Republican meeting in Dublin. Our metadata says this took place on O'Connell Street, or Sackville Street as it was then, and I have tagged with these names, but I am just not convinced that this was the location. So please feel free to weigh in with arguments, opinions, or evidence (as usual)! Have placed this pic on the map as being near Findlater Place, merely because of the sign in the background - dodgy, but temporary until we find out more! Date: Sunday, 19 August 1923…

Ladies' Bathing Place

As there is rampant male nudity over on our other Flickr stream this morning, it seemed only fair to redress the balance with this view of (blurry) female swimmers emerging from the water at the Ladies' Bathing Place at Portrush, Co. Antrim. Date: Circa 1900 NLI Ref.: L_ROY_02215

Elegant onlookers on the steps of the Imperial Hotel, The Mall, Waterford at the start of a Hunt Meet. Particularly love the Burlington Bertie chap in the top hat!

Protest meeting at Beresford Place, and the arrest of Count Plunkett

Taken from the back of the crowd protesting at the arrest of Count Plunkett in 1917. The cataloguer was not from Dublin as the catalogue states "Butt bridge prominent in view", when - as sharon.corbet points out - Loopline Bridge is more prominent. With thanks especially today to Niall McAuley and beachcomberaustralia for confirming the context for this Keogh shot, and DannyM8 and O Mac for additional contemporary accounts, we have confirmation of location, subject, date and even time of the…

Hubba, Hubba!

Thought we might visit another bathing place today - this time it's the Bathing Slip at Tramore in Co. Waterford. A tad more rampant semi-nudiness on display than at Portrush yesterday... And what a remarkable range of early 20th century male swimwear? Some seem almost improvised (not that I've examined their nether regions in great detail, you understand). I repeat: Hubba, Hubba! Date: Circa 1910?? (definitely after 1890, thanks Niall McAuley) NLI Ref.: L_ROY_09090

Looks as if the woman with her back to the camera was operating a roulette wheel at this race meeting at Punchestown. Plus, wouldn't it be lovely if that picnic was clearer?

Very Grand Stands

This is almost certainly where our Dandies from Friday were headed, or headed home from (bad grammar, but you know what I mean) - a race meeting at Punchestown - very distinctive stands in the background. Can anyone identify the regiment from the soldiers' uniforms?

February 1, 1928

This is the procession for James MacNeill, newly sworn in Governor General of the Irish Free State. Our catalogue had this as Westmoreland Street, Dublin, but following discussion here, we're now sure that this is actually the head of the procession on O'Connell Street, having just passed over O'Connell Bridge, with Westmoreland Street in the distance back over the bridge . This coverage from Thursday 2 February's Irish Independent outlines the ceremonial sequence: "Mr. James MacNeill was…
