Limerick Na Fianna Eireann group photograph.
Captain Joe Dalton is front centre. Dalton, who had rose up through the ranks of the Fianna since it was formed, became the ‘leader’ of O/C of the Limerick Fianna after Sean Heuston had left for Dublin in the autumn of 1913. Joe Dalton was secretary of the Fianna Munster regional council and was also on the national Fianna executive as Limerick representative. Dalton was instrumental in bringing about the ‘military’ re-organisation of the national Fianna structure in 1915.
Taken in 1913 at the ‘Fianna Hall’ in Barrington street, Limerick. The hall was situated behind Fenian John Daly’s house.
