Information:

It is believed that Patrick was born 10 March 1874 in Enaghan, but while the Commonwealth War Graves Commission states that Patrick's mother, Kate, lived in Enaghan, others records state that Patrick was born in Co. Kildare*, but it may be that two records were conflated. Patrick enlisted in Dublin. 

Patrick's mother included the inscription IN FOND MEMORY OF MY DEAR SON PATRICK KILLED IN ACTION R.I.P. on his headstone.

Parents Names: (Likely) son of Peter* Sheridan and Kate (née Masterson) of Enaghan, Moyne.
Notes: *Patrick's father was likely Peter, however the Register of Effects lists his father as next-of-kin, and gives his name as Patrick. Some records show that No. 28119 was born in Co. Kildare - it may be that there was confusion between two Patrick Sheridans in the RDF. We believe his family was: www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Longford/Columbkille/Enaghan/1550597/ **Patrick was likely baptised in the parish of Scrabby, Co. Cavan.
