- Jimmy Páidí Og who lived in Mín Na nGall.

This photo appeared in 'The Irish Press' in 1957. The journalist climbed up the back of Earagail mountain and to his surprise found Jimmy smoking his pipe with his sheepdog, asked him how long he'd been up there, as he had seen no one in front of him, Jimmy said thats because you walked up the back, and I walked up the front.

Jimmy was a butcher and delivered meat on his Bike. He was born in 1890, so he was 67 in this picture.
