  • I live in Northern France .There is a Commonwealth war graves cemetery 3 miles away from my home in which a soldier of the Connaught Rangers named Michael Joseph Conneely killed on August 13th 1914 is buried.After some research, i found out that he was born in Boston USA but that his place of residence at the time he enlisted was Oughterard. Would you have some more information about him? I visited his grave yesterday and noticed that three small round stones had been placed at the foot of it.Someone apparently paid a tribute to him this way.I’m very interested in the stories of Irish soldiers who fought in WW1in the north of France and would be delighted to learn more about MJ Conneely.Thank you.
