There's a photos in Ultan's book showing the mass being said on one of the sites . What I don't seem to recall was any photos of the wet canteen . It seems inconceivable today that such an institution could have existed up until the sixties given the dangerous work the men were engaged in. The macho drinking culture was always facilitated by the contractors ;when there was a wet canteen it was literally institutionalised.
