Full concentration needed here as the games of dominoes are in full swing. Some of the names, Tommy Burns, taking a moment off to have a word with the landlord Jack Bowen who is collecting empty glasses. Next to Tommy is -- Joynt, and to Tommy's right is Dennis Clarke and Frank Barker at the very end. John Mulqueeny is extreme right just in photo. The game of dominoes gave endless hours of pleasure probably much better than today's Sudoku in the brain training sense.
