Hills Workers from the 1950s

Hills Mill Workers 1950s

Here at Lucan Newsletter we are privileged to have had access to so many photographic records over the years, and this week's offering is no exception. From the album of Annie Howlett of Weir View, the above photo shows a group of workers at Hills Mill in the early 1950s. These were some of the lucky people who had jobs and didn't have to take the boat in that era.

Pictured in what appears to be a building site, some of the names are: Mabel Farrell, Marie Reilly, Chrissie Murray, May Finn, Angela Hughes, Josie Brady, Leo McCormack, Iggy Barr, Willie Farrell, Bill Graham, Pattie Dunne, Maura Finlay, Eileen Barr, Breda Coyne, Chris Thornton, Catherine Keogh, Lou Clarke, Nellie Currie, Dympna Byrne, Pauline Graham and Doreen Buggle. Thanks to all who helped indentify the faces!
