The following photographs were sent to me by our own Billy Hyland and show a rare photograph of the Old Catholic Church on O'Higgins Tce. In the photograph are left; baby Billy (5 days old), Nurse Fisher (midwife), Comdt. Des Butler RIP (signals corps)(husband of Mrs Maura Butler of Curragh choir fame), Nell Britton (aunt), Paul RIP and Judy Hyland.
The second photograph was found in a book as a bookmark. On the back it reads "September 1996 - Curragh no. 10 B, McDonagh". It appears to be a photo of maybe a former resident of this house, maybe Tommy Sweeney's housing list will help identify them.
Special thanks to Billy for sharing these photographs.
And straight I will repair To the Curragh of Kildare For it's there I'll finds tidings of my dear
What a wonderful photo of the outside of the old church.The Morris Minor is nearly parked in the doorway.It's a rare one indeed.What can I say about the other photo?The expression on the gentlemans face says it all.Thanks for posting.Cheers Joe.

True Andy and we were happy.
Great photo of old church Billy. Hope you are keeping well. We lived in 10B McDonagh from 09/03/1966 to 06/04/1972. It doesn't look anything like it did when we lived there! No wonder the man in the photo looks bemused...
