Photograph Standards

Posted by Adrian Neville on 15 April 2018


On Wednesday, April 11th, 86 team photos were mounted on the walls of the lounge area of the club. These conform to a new modern standard, with the photos masked to a ratio of 9”*6.5”, glassed, wooden-framed and screwed securely into the walls. They have been provided by Grants of Baggot Street.

They should be viewed from top to bottom and left to right, except in front of the bar, where the trophy wins of Merrion 1sts, men and women, are celebrated. There may be room for one more year within the lounge, but after that, expansion must take place inside the tea area, where there is enough space for the next 20-25 years.

As 60 of these photos pertain to 1990 onwards, this is a real testimony to the strength of the club over the last 27 years, through all the teams. Something that we can take pride in.

Some photos did not make the cut, due to their poor quality. I am advised by Grants that if a smartphone is being used, then the transfer to the net/computer should be carried out using the option’actual’, rather than ‘large’. Better still, arrange for Rodney Smythe, our club cameraman, to take it.

Finally, a note on posing. Standing outside the pavilion with a bottle of beer in one’s hand is not posing. I advise that some of the Junior teams copy the men’s and women’s senior teams, where an established standard is followed.


I shall be in contact with the successful team captains towards the end of the season to continue this standard approach.
