Old Doyle Family Photos

While in County Kerry, Ireland this past summer, several times I met up with a family of third cousins on the Doyle line to talk about our common ancestors. They brought me sacks of photographs to peruse, and C photographed them for me. This blog post is for all of my Doyle cousins to enjoy. I have identified people known to me, and if any of you Doyles can add to the names-dates-places or provide context, please email me at

The pics are not in any sensible order. It is best that I get them up now rather than take the time to make this an organized post. I have more photos than shown here and will add them over time.

If any of you have Doyle-related photographs to add, send as .jpg to the email above! And feel free to invite others to view these.
