Na Fianna Éireann, ‘D’ Company Usher’s Quay, Dublin, 1917

Fianna Eireann Ushers Quay

Fianna Eireann ‘D’ Company, June 1917.

Liam Langley, Captain of Usher’s Quay Company, and later National Fianna Director of Organisation & Education, is seated in the 2nd row.

In 1917 ‘D’ Company’s 1st Lieutenant was Hugo MacNeill, and its 2nd Lieutenant was S Rafferty. MacNeill, who later became Captain of ‘D’ Company in 1918 is not in this photograph. It is unclear if Rafferty is in the photograph.

The photo was taken at Blessington Basin, in Phibsborough following a Fianna training exercise.
