Most of those pictured were
members of the Church of Ireland community. Many Carlovians will
recognize Dick Walsh (marked x) of Burrin Street, who at the time of
writing is still alive and active. The Brigade practised first aid,
drill, camping and sports; this group were the winners of the
1924-1925 Ossory Flag.
