A photo found in a Dublin antique dealer's recently. On back in pencil written 'Patrick Semple'. Anyone with any ideas contact.
Patrick Semple contacts to tell that this "is quite likely to be Patrick Semple who was Professor of Classics at the Old Royal University of Ireland that became UCD.
There is a photograph in Ellman's biography of James Joyce in which he and Joyce along with a few others appear."
(4.9.2011) And indeed there is, another reader sends in a copy. Semple standing on extreme right, James Joyce standing second left.
(The Dictionary of Ulster Biography has a ref to Patrick Semple. )
