What a lovely surprise to receive this lovely photo from Ms Anne Brophy including the name of those photographed.

According to Anne, the attached photo [see below] features Ballinrobe families who would have lived in the town from the 1930s onwards - mainly on Glebe St. New St and Bridge St.

Unfortunately most of these family names have disappeared from the town, but maybe some relatives will connect with them.

Luckily, for once, the names are recorded on the back of the photo.

Front row, left to right: Micko Sweeney, Gus Lydon, Bernie O'Keefe, T. Hession, Mary Burke.

My Grandfather Michael Moffatt lived on Glebe street in the 1930s. I know he was still there in 1937 according to newspapers. The Burke family liveed on Main Street and Glebe Street. My Grandmother Christina Burke was married to Michael Moffatt. Christina's Father was Martin Burke although I don't know the name of her mother.

I am not sure if or how long they stayed in Ballinrobe but would love to know if I have any cousins there.

Great to hear from you Dale and thank you for the information.

I believe my family lived on Glebe around and/or before this time. Jennings's and possibly some Cooney's.

Wonder if anyone remembers?.
