This week we are hoping that we can name more miners photographed in the 1940's. These men would have been born sometime between about 1900 and the 1920's. The photographs are taken by M A Keating for Mianraí Teoranta earliest date 1941 latest 1949. It is thought that they are most likely to have been taken in 1942 early in the the working of Ballynonty mine.

We have no names for any of the men in the next two images, maybe you have wedding photographs of your parents or grandparents and you may recognise a face here.

|We still have no names for these miners from two generations
And if you can name any of the men please let us know!
