Kilmore Bowls Club History: Can you name anyone in the pictures?

Philip Skehan, one of our members, is currently researching the history of the Kilmore Bowls Club, which will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019. Philip would appreciate hearing from anyone who was involved in the club in the past, particularly office bearers, or any families that have recollections of members; also any documents, photographs, memorabilia, or anything else related to the club that may still be in existence.

Philip has provided us with these two photographs to see if anyone can identify the individuals. If you do recognise anyone then please let us know via email at kilmorehistoricalsociety@gmail.com or message us on our Facebook Page and we can pass the details on to Philip.

History’s Mysteries!

Reproduced from the Society’s newsletter, Kilmore Connections, Issue 70, December 2016.

Can anyone help identify this lady ? The photo is in the collection of the Kilmore Historical Society but we have no information on the sitter, who is wearing an ornately ornamented nineteenth century dress and a cameo on a chain.

The picture was most likely taken in the late nineteenth century, perhaps around 1880.

Perhaps her distinctive face might jog some memories.

If so, please email us at kilmorehistoricalsociety@gmail.com
