Patrick was born in Enaghan, Aughnacliffe, however we are uncertain of the date as it appears that Patrick's military records have not survived.
Patrick intitially enlisted with the Leinster Regiment, before transferring to the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, possibly in Glasgow, Scotland. He entered the war on the 9 July 1915 in Gallipoli.
Patrick's sister Maggie was his next-of-kin.
