Hi Brandy,
I was the one that lived in Dominick St. I knew Dermot, he lived in Desmond Ave,his younger brother was David and older brother was Paul. David emigrated but I'm not sure to where and Paul worked as a fireman in Dun Laoghaire. As far as I'm aware Dermot died a little while ago but I wouldn't be absolutely sure so hopefully I'm wrong. Grammer is right about Dermot, great photographer.

Hi Lads
Dermot Ring was in the same class as me in Eblana check out Bro Burkes class in my photos
Became a wedding photographer in later years and lived in Ballybrack before he died must be ten or twelve years ago now.
I have in the back of my mind that he lived in Mary Street about the second up from the gap coming from Libarary Road but Denis may know better.


Denis he was another of our comic swaps in the fifties along with Tommy Tallant,Noel Lewins, Mick Lamkin, Richard Cummins , Mick Mooney, Gerry Daly, Kevin Furlong, Paul Kelly Eddie Ryan etc etc

Hi Jacqui, thanks for the comment. I unfortunately dont know for sure anyone else in the photo, I,m hoping that people like yourself might put a name to a couple of people there. My father was born in 1911 and I,m guessing he was no more than early 20,s in that pic. That would date it at around 1933 ish. over 75 years ago. He had many friends but in latter years he would meet up with two men from the Noggin for their daily walk. One was Tommy Kelly, one of the taxi people and the other was Tommy Kenny. The three of them at that time would have been in their 70,s and I was always sorry I didnt get a photo of them walking along with their identical grey raincoats!

re the above Iwonder was the Tommy Kelly from Sarsfield St. (he was a relation of my mothers) tIf im on the right track they used to drink in the Deerhunter -was Tommy Kenny a postman??? they used to drink there on the early evening shift :D

They could have lived there before moving to Desmond Ave. Dermot was not into sport or street games but always had a good sense of humour. I didn't know him as well as his brother David who was very much into the street games. I remember his Dad who had a badly curved back and to see him walking nearly doubled over was very sad.

Hi F/b
Just saw photo now never seen that one before maybe St Kevins who would have been one of the first teams in Sallynoggin seems like early 1930s but I must check if I can match up some faces with photos that I have .
Do you know what team it was ?
send me a P M with your fathers name and I will check in my stuff

As for one of the men being Matt Kane I knew Matt very well and I dont think you would ever see him in a soccer photo he was G A A through and through , He was agreat man for promoting Irish remeber the Cealhi Dances he ran in the Town Hall my first ever dances ah more memories .
I drove his camogie teams for many years they only time Matt got involved with Pearse Rovers after his son Ray started playing

Hi harjoe, I,m nearly certain it is St Kevins boys, it would be great to find out more about the other lads in the photo, hope you have some success there.

Grammer, I think you are right about those two men, I will phone the mother in the morning and she should know for sure. My father wasnt a drinking man so he wouldnt have met them in the pub on any of their sessions.

:oops: Grammer, although the Tommy Kelly the taximan I mentioned was indeed a good friend of my fathers, the Tommy Kelly who used walk with him and Tommy Kenny was actually a different Tommy Kelly and did indeed live in Sarsfield Street. :oops: So, inadvertantly you alluded to the (most likely) the correct Tommy Kelly in the first place! :D Complicated isnt it? :roll: Tommy Kenny was indeed a postman as you said and the other Tommy (not the taximan) :roll: was I think a single man but had a sister who lived locally, maybe even in the same house for all I know. ;-)

Hi newgirl09, Don,t know if its to late replying to your question about the O,malley,s in Dominick Street, Yeah i know them quite well, so well in fact I married one of them... And as for John Morrison I meet him on a regular basis. Johns Mother died a couple of weeks ago, and i didnt find out till the day after she was buried. So the Dun Laoghaire grapevine is not all its made out to be.
