I got this flowering shrub as a cutting from my father in Mallow. Can you identify it?

Looks a bit like Deutzia to me.

Dick, I think it might be a Philadelphus. Has it a nice scent?  It is also known as Mock Orange, common name.

Mary, I also have Philadelphus or Mock Orange but it is different.

Hazel's suggestion that it is a Deutzia must be right. My Deutzia has  finished flowering by now, but maybe we are a little ahead of Carlow

Of course you are in Waterford, Mary. True Waterford are to play Cork in Munster senior hurling and don't forget Cork had only one point to spare in the Munster senior football.
