Remembering Men from Oughterard who Died in W.W.1.

Jim Fahy

Michael Higgins, eldest son of John Higgins and Margaret Hanly of Doon, Rosscahill who was killed in action in France in April 1915. He apparently gave his address as Ross which adjoins the townland of Doon. Ross train station would have been his departure point.

His family moved from Doon to Porridgetown some years later. This is the address shown on the War Memorial.

  • I am a descendent of Michael Higgins brother and I am looking for a photograph of Michael Higgins as we do not have one also any further information anyone may have relating to him while he lived in the Oughterard area prior to going to Ypres in Belgium where he was killed fighting with the Connaught Rangers
