Postcard From The Gaeltacht




Rannafest, Co Donegal, August 1936.

Dear Eileen
This is just a note to let you know that this is a great place. I am having a great time although we have school for four hours in the day. I saw Elsie here today.

The card is addressed to Eileen Murnaghan, Omagh, Co Tyrone. I think Maurice is Eileen’s older brother Maurice Murnaghan, from Omagh, son of the doctor there, Dan Murnaghan. Maurice later became Professor of Physiology at UCD. I wonder if he ever got to have a word with Elsie…the genders in Rannafast seem to have been fairly rigidly segregated, from the photo on the card (top)….
