Emigrants full of hope

Vincent Doyle sent me this picture which was taken in 1962. It shows Vincent from Inch, Liam Hayes of Tannavalla and Tommy Behan of St. Brendan’s Terrace. These three friends worked together in Moloney’s Garage before deciding to set out to explore greener faraway hills. They emigrated to Birmingham.

Vincent later moved to London where he still lives. Liam has returned to Listowel with his wife, Una and sadly, Tommy has passed away.
