Looking for info on James Doolan

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Malcolm Report 3 Jan 2018 22:14

I am looking for any information on my great grandfather James Doolan born approx 1875 -1880 who was in the Irish free state in 1940 and in the army.
I know of two daughters:
Mary Elizabeth Doolan born 1899 and married Charles Wallin in Gosport Hants UK in 1920.
Dorothy Helen Doolan born 1915 who married George Nicholls in Quetta India in 1940.

I have contacted the Irish Military Archives Cathal Barracks Dublin, but they have several James Doolan and require further information.
