This is my favourite photo of my Dad taken over 50 years ago in 1968 when he had a stroke.  He lost his speech but not his sense of humour.  He died later that year but left me with a love of photography - I still have his camera and his photographs - and a sense of humour!.

This is a picture of my mother and her mother in 1962. They lived at the side of the road in Painstown Donadea. Both have since passed.  My mother died at 57 in 2015 lung cancer and my grandmother died 2 years after this picture was taken 1964 aged 48 of a bursted brain aneurysm.  This is definitely my all time favourite picture. Notice the washing drying on the hedge.
