Has this cousin of Joanne's changed much over the years?
I've been told that this photo was taken, most likely by Vano Dinsmore, on Easter Monday, about 1959, close to Tohill's house. The poster behind the boys to the right may have been for the Aurora cinema. The lads were waiting for late arrivals including Homer Murphy, before setting off for the walk to Cloughmore.
The more eagle-eyed among you might have spotted that Tommy is attired in the same clothes as in the photo "A pioneer on his way to the big stone", so taken on the same day!

I can't speak for the others, Joanne, but one pioneer pin is still firmly in place - he's still an "orange man!"

I didn't say he hasn't changed, just that he's still a pioneer, as you well know, smartie-pants!

Sure you know I lost it years ago! You just love to bait me, as usual! As to the cousin, I haven't seen him in years, but I don't think Tommy & Thomas have changed very much, they both wear well!

Yes, I do know, but I'll wait a while & she if she can figure it out - considering he has the same surname as herself she really should, don't you think? ~x(

Away-a-that gap! Look at the photo again, son-shine is a real chip off the maternal block! :D

Just looking back through some old stuff and can finally say that I met Tony McGuigan last month,it's just a pity it had to be at such a sad occasion,his sister Mamie's funeral.

Joanne - that was nice that you met your
cousin.
A pity it was at a sad occasion.

I hadn't seen that photo before,
so that was nice to see.
