He then joined the Garda Siochana 29th March 1923 in Kerry. he was awarded the Black & Tan medal by the presidant of Irelad, his Garda No 2592. Born 27th April 1898 Ballyglass Ardnacrusha, Co Clare, Died 16th August 1981 83 years. We are very proud of our family history and stroung roots with Ireland, would my Grandfather being alive till 1981 be given the survivers medal. We hope so to keep in memory.
