    Two unlocalised Early Bronze Age gold lunulae originally in the collection of the earls of Dunraven are each notable for distinctive modern features, including a stitched repair and an ogham inscription. This paper considers some aspects of the history of the Dunraven collection, in particular the prehistoric and more recent biographies of the lunulae. Dedicated to the memory of Valerie Dowling, the National Museum of Ireland’s Senior Photographer, whose work illustrates this paper. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam.
