1st January 1962

My grandparents ran a Lough Graney Social Club out of their basement in Brooklyn and ran a trip to Ireland for about 60 people based on the photo.

I found the linked photo in my father's file cabinet when cleaning out his apartment. There are a number of photos with a banner for a Lough Graney Social Club, some were taken in the basement of their home in Brooklyn, NY. There were other photos of my grandparents on a tractor, presumably at the family farm. When did Aer Lingus use the name on the side of the plane of "Irish International Airlines" and not "Aerlínte Éireann" or "Aer Lingus" for their flights from presumably JFK to Shannon ? My guess is that the picture is in the early 1960's.
