Sir Thomas Myles – Surgeon and Irish Volunteers Gun Runner (1857-1937).
Sir Thomas Myles’s yacht ‘The Chotah’ was used in Kilcoole in 1914 for the ‘other’ gunrunning that took place. He was also responsible for saving many Volunteers lives in 1916. He was a surgeon at Richmond Hospital and many of the wounded men from the Church Street area owe their lives to him.
