In our catalogue, this photo was originally titled "Pier, with a row of moored boats, in an unknown location". Research by our Flickr Commons users established that this was a pier at Castletownbere, Co. Cork. They also identified the boat as the Ovoca, built in Arklow, Co. Wicklow in 1908, and later fishing out of Balbriggan, Co. Dublin.
