St Marys Camogie Team , East Wall 1920′s

01 st Marys Camogie Team KELLY TIESThis amazing photograph shows the St Marys Camogie team in the 1920′s . They are practiscing on a local field known as the “Kelly ties” . Look closely and you will see that this is roughly where the Dublin Corporation houses on Russell Avenue were built a few years later (and still stand). The houses and street behind the team look almost identical today .
