Mass Servers Photo

mass servers at merrion church

In our last issue we featured the above picture, supplied by Brian Davitt, of the mass servers in the Tin Church, Merrion in the 1940s.

Brian had identified the following: 1. Donald Brindley; 2. Noel Fay; 3. Des Colligan; 4. Des Fay; 5. David Brindley; 6. Brian Davitt; 7. Michael Lennon; 8. Maurice Davitt.

Donald Brindley has since been in touch to identify 9 and 11 as the Maguire brothers (perhaps you can give us their Christian names?) and 12 as Donald Keoghan. Number 10 is still to be identified, so if you can name the young man please get in touch. Thanks also to Charles Lysaght who has identified the priest with glasses as Father O’Flynn, the other priest as Canon Flanagan and the third adult as Kevin Quinn.
