  • I wonder if my grandfather Owen Murtagh is in this? My grandmother was Nurse Murtagh.

  • I wish I had a roster to go with the picture, but I don't.  The picture is in an album my dad has and he knew which one was his father.

  • I'd be related to the Duffy's, Fidgeon's, McMahon's and possibly these Brennan's as Nurse Murtagh was a Brennan. I wonder are there any school photos of Owen Murtagh at all. No idea of the dates though. Amazing photograph.
