Old Photographs

A selection of old photographs of Ballinrobe and its community down the years.

We hope to expand this category over the next few months and would appreciate any copies of photographs that you would like included.  Forward to myhistoricalballinrobe@gmail.com or bring into the local library where the originals will be scanned and returned to you within the week.

Large volumes may take a little longer, but, they will be returned safely.

Just click on an image to get larger version.

Occasionaly we will put up a mystery image or photograph where only a few names are known.   It would be a great help if you could assist us in identifying the people or places that are not named.
