"Two unidentified Franciscan friars walking alongside a church carrying an umbrella" is Fathers Bibby and O'Connor

This week we are visiting "The Republican Photograph Collection". I believe this is our second visit. I feel sure you will be able to get the location, I am hopeful you will discover the names of the two friars. Would it be too much to hope for anything more?

With thanks initially to our own Carol Maddock and corroberation from sharon.corbet and BeachcomberAustralia it is confirmed that this image is of Capuchin Father's Albert Bibby and Dominic O'Connor.

With the help of additional material from the RTÉ Stills Library and the ever-useful NLA Trove Archive it seems that this image is likely associated to the arrest of both men in the winter of 1920 - during the Irish War of Independence. Probably dating from after their release it is likely captured at the Capuchin friary and church on Church Street in Dublin....
