“This photo of my parents, James and Alice Hickey, was taken by Arthur Fields in the summer of 1955. They have since passed RIP. It is so precious to me and I feel so fortunate to have it and also to include it on your website. They had gone into Dublin to buy the engagement ring and were married in August of that year. My Mam told me they had just left the Jewellery shop in O’Connell Street and walked a few paces when the photo was taken. Arthur’s initials are on the back of the photo and also the month and year it was taken.

Warmest regards
Monica Kinsella”
