At Tandragee.

At Tandragee.

The top hat pipe smoking gentleman is Jack Maginnis, during the sixties he was MP for Central Armagh. Who are the others?

Barely visible, the face of an elderly lady looking out of the window pane, it can be seen in photo just below the horses chest, how about identifying exact location on the hill in Tandragee, I'm sure someone will be able to name the lady.  Another thought, what were the party pushing and what was the horse pulling?
