Millstreet Carnival Fancy Dress Parade Autumn 1951

We thank Annabelle O’Sullivan, Jerry O’Regan and Hannelie O’Connor for arranging to share this truly superb image of Millstreet Carnival Fancy Dress Parade in the Autumn of 1951 (the year I was born!).   Most likely the picture was taken by Frank Reen (Snr.) outside his Pharmacy looking across the road to the O’Regan Family home and capturing two young participants in the Parade.   Members of the O’Regan Family, the Reen Family and the Justice Family are seen in the background of the image.   Feel most welcome to share on our Comment platform the names of any further people you may recognise in this wonderfully historic photograph 0f 69 years ago.   Tap on the image to enlarge.  (S.R.)
