Who Do You Know? (Updated)

Black and white image of Irish rugby squad before traveling to S Africa
Photo donated to Blackrock College RFC by John O Shea

Longtime supporter of the Club, John O Shea recently donated this photo, but we don't know much about it. Can you help us fill in the blanks?

Here's what we do know: it was taken before traveling to S. Africa.

We're hoping you can help! Do you recognize any of the faces in the photo above? Do you know what year this may have been taken? Click on the photo to enlarge.
