Sure and begorra, it's the renowned Flaherty brothers!

Together the six Irish gentlemen worked for "way over 100 years" at Louisville's Brown Hotel, starting when the eldest, Claude, left the farm in Meade County, Ky. to work as a dishwasher.

Pictured in 1956 at the Brown Hotel bar are, from left (and in age order from oldest to youngest), Claude, Charlie, Thadd, John, Roscoe and Garland Flaherty. See story on Page 2.
