    I’m researching images and would like to inquire about the source of two photographs run in the article “Boston and the Irish Rising.” The first, a photo of David I. Walsh walking, and the second, John Boyle O’Reilly seated at a desk. Thank you for any help you can provide. Best regards.

    Hi Michael, I have a similar question to the above, as I am trying to trace the origin of the image in your article of Nora Connolly in military style uniform. I see that you have advised Keith to contact Irish America Magazine directly, but I thought I would ask you as well in the hopes of getting a swift response. Regards.

    Michael, a chara,

    My name is Siobhán Ní Chonaráin, the overall administrator with Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (CCÉ) at our Head-Quarters in Dublin.

    The editor of Treoir, CCÉ’s journal Dr. Labhrás O Murchú, would like to include the article your article of October-November 2011 : Comhaltas; Making Music for Sixty Years in the forthcoming issue of Treoir. It was an exceptional article, capturing so much of the essence of CCÉ in North America.

    I am contacting you with regard to seeking permission for same.

    Obviously full credit and acknowledgement would be attributed to you and the publication etc and you / and any others would be sent copies.
