I just used Google Translate to find out what "Qui sint heli" actually meant so that I might be taken for a latin scholar but am not impressed with the answer! Who is Eli? And then reading it perhaps it is correct and Eli = Elijah and each line asks the same question about different biblical characters? What do you think?
Whatever it may be the artwork on that ancient page is simply magnificent.

The Square in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford with what looks like the last few horses of a horse fair, random people, a water stand and a DOG!. The candid nature of the shot is emphasised by the man tying his bootlace on the right!

A really fine image this morning from Monkey Morgan's lens. A large church with an equally large school building in the background. Long shadows might tell a story and his aircraft attracted enough attention for the two worshippers in the yard to stop and shielding their eyes look up as he passed overhead!

Michael Davitt is synonymous with the Land League though many Irish people would be hard put to tell you what that was? A fine portrait of a man with a fine moustache taken in New York apparently by Gregg photographers!

Buses of tourists at Parknasilla, Killarney, Co. Kerry. Looking at that road surface it seems unlikely that two more will come in the opposite direction and create a traffic jam. A really unusual and interesting shot from the redoubtable Mr. French.
