English: This is recorded as an ordination group for Mrs Burke (seated in the fur coat?). Would imagine that the young priest seated in the one who's just been ordained.

Family resemblances are strong here, and if they're all from one family, then that means the Burkes produced two priests and one nun - a coup for any family at that time.

Date: 8 December 1926
