Limerick Field Club
The committee of
the Limerick Field Club in 1899.
Also the Ebrill section in the list of members.
From Preliminary pages
of Vol.1 No.3 (1899) of
Journal of the Limerick Field Club.
On the committee is William Ebrill junior.
(His father died in 1892.)
Vice-President is "Miss Ebrill". Who is she?
There are three candidates,
Mary (the eldest) and
Elizabeth (Lizzie) and
- The members list has two of them in Limerick,
"Miss Ebrill" (no initial)
"Miss L. Ebrill", who would be Lizzie.
We know that
Eileen is living in Dublin in 1901 and maybe earlier.
"Miss Ebrill" with no initial is the old fashioned way
to refer to the eldest daughter.
Vice-President "Miss Ebrill"
must be Mary Ebrill.
- The above issue (Vol.1 No.3) has photographs
credited to "Miss Ebrill".
