|Date of Death:|
Joseph was born c.1887 likely near Killashee.
He enlisted with the Leinster Regiment in February 1915, but was discharged on the 22 November 1918 on medical grounds. Strangely, he did not appear to have received the 1914-15 Star, he was granted the Silver War Badge, (B215389), given to those who were honourably discharged due to illness in WW1.
Joseph was noted as having a fractured thigh in his pension discharge notes, attributed to his military service. His marital status was not noted in his pension index.
|Notes:||*Townland written as Clonsheiray. It is possible that this is the same Joseph living at Cloonsheerin in 1911, with his wife Maggie and her mother, Mary Fallon. This Joseph and Maggie were married on the 25 August 1910 in St. Mary's Church Lanesborough - Maggie was from Cloonsheerin, whereas Joseph was from Stonepark and was the son of Thomas and Mary Farrell.|
