Fianna comrades, Eamon Martin and Garry Holahan.

Eamon Martin (1892-1971) and Garry Holahan (1894-1967).

Photograph taken just after Garry was released from Frongoch and before Eamon travelled to the United States in late 1916. Eamon Martin was the Fianna Dublin Brigade Commandant in 1916, Fianna Director of Training and Fianna Chief of Staff 1916 – 1920. Garry Holahan took over as Commandant of the Dublin Brigade in 1917 and was also the national Fianna Quartermaster General. Both Eamon and Garry had been in the Fianna since the early years and they were, along with Adjutant General Barney Mellows, the driving forces behind the organization in the post-1916 period.
