A Dublin Wedding

So here’s a little mystery.

This photo was found in Farmhill in 2012 so we think there is some Lisacul connection – perhaps a relative of one of the people in the picture. It was taken at a wedding in September 1945, at the end of The Emergency.

The text on the back of the photo reads:
