    Hi Eamon.
    Great photos. I have been researching the 6th Battalion for a number of years. There is a similar photo on this site of F Coy taken in the grounds of Leapardstown racecourse. Several of the Deansgrange Volunteers had organised themselves into a full-time flying column after the capture of a company roll in May 1921. I am just curious as to how you got the date of June 1921 for the photo, I was of the assumption it was taken post-truce?
    I have the names of the Volunteers in the photograph and will post them up as soon as I dig them out.
    Regards,
    James Brady
