New Picture Gallery - Patricia Lyons

(31 March 2008)In the coming days I'll be adding a new set of pictures to the site in a separate gallery. They were almost all taken by our much loved colleague Patricia Lyons (Patricia Murphy, as we knew her then) in May 1984. For the shot above, Patricia had handed the camera to a colleague so that she could step into frame. From left: Patricia Murphy, Freda McGough, Ann Daly, and Mary McAleese, then a reporter in FCA, now President of Ireland.

There never was a FCA 'family photo', so the photomontage above (which has some key omissions which I hope to make good) is as near as we get. It includes (reading from top left and line by line):

Rose Doyle, Proinsias O’Conluain, Diarmuid Peavoy, Tom Manning, Mary Curtin, Maxwell Sweeney, John Skehan.
Seamus Heaney, Pat Kenny, Donncha O’Dulaing, Ronan O’Donoghue, Sean MacReamoinn, Freda McGough, Patrick Farrelly.
John Bowman, Phil Crotty, Mary McAleese, Marian Finucane, Padraic O’Neill, Donal Flanagan, Brendan McCarthy.
Patricia Murphy, Kathleen O’Connor, Michael Littleton, Padraic Dolan, Des Hickey, John Caden, Betty Purcell.
Rodney Rice, Pat Leahy, Clare Duignan, Doireann Ni Bhriain, Colm Keane, Patrick O’Gorman, Micheal Holmes.
Dick Warner, Muiris MacConghail, Ed Mulhall, Bernadette O’Sullivan, Jim Fahy, Ingrid Miley, Micheal Johnston.
Micheal O hUanachain, Eugene Murray, Valerie Kane, Brian Reynolds, Liam Nolan, Jim Lyons, Cillian de Paor.
