Dunmore East is a small fishing village on
the south-east coast of Ireland, 16kms from
the city of Waterford.
It sits on the western side of the Waterford
Harbour Estuary, 4.8kms from Hook Head in
Dunmore East, Co. Waterford,
The young man is Danny Long, of Long's Hill. The family used to live in what we would
know as Francie Patterson's house, until they moved into that beautifully done-up house
that overlooks the entrance into the woods, which had been vacated by the RIC. At the
entrance was a row of thatched houses, 3 or 4 I think, that were known as Grove Cottages.
My ancestors lived there.
I imagine that's where the photo came from. There are some of the
walls still in existence. The cottages can be seen in the painting of
the lower village in Power's Bar.
Note: I believe at some point the barracks was burned down by a
bunch of local men during a night of riotious assembly!! The job was
completed before reinforcements could make it out from Waterford .
I'll try find out more about that episode!
The answer is!
