Motorcar was a Triumph Herald, not a Minx

In the issue of 'Irish Lives', dated October 20, you refer to the car on page 31 as a Hillman Minx. The car is in fact a Triumph Herald. I should know, as I drove both! Nice magazine.

Christopher Byrne Tallaght, Dublin 24 This photograph was taken during the summer of 1963 in Arklow, where our family, plus aunts, uncles and cousins, went on holidays from Dublin every summer in the 1960s. My father, Michael, took this photo of us children fishing for eels...or anything! (I am fourth on right, back row).

As you can see from the sheer look of concentration on all our faces, we were unaware the photo was being taken.
