1961 Photographic Tour of Ireland (part 4)

Between Oughterard & Maam Cross, Co. Galway

Boys at work and play on the road to Maam Cross

As the Parkers motored westwards into Connemara, the sights and scenes got very rural and rugged once again …..

The boys in this photograph are Pat Healy on the donkey, his brother John Healy, and Patrick Thornton on the right. The cottage in question is located about one mile west of Oughterard. In 1961 this cottage was the home of Pat and Barbara Healy, grandparents of the two boys in the photograph. It has now been modernised and extended to the rear by a great- grandson of Pat and Barbara.
