I am searching for information about my grandfather, Michael Meagher. Michael was born in or around St Patricks Day, perhaps 1910 or 1911, in we believe the Templemore area perhaps an area of Clonmore. It is said that his family or that of his friend owned a pub in the area but this is not confirmed.
During the 1930’s Michael left for England where we was married at St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham, 1938 to Rose McCann, a Belfast woman. They had 3 sons, Michael Og. John and Charles. John is my father and has been earnestly searching for his Dad for over 50 years. During the period of the Second World War Michael joined the British Army as a Royal Artillery or Royal Enginner. Michael survived the conflict and returned home to Ireland and lived with my grandmother in Mayobridge, but soon returned to England and lived in Manchester until 1987.
Michael may have returned home to Tipperary.
If he is still alive, he would be 92 or 93 years of age.
We believe that his mother’s surname was Stapleton although this is not yet confirmed.
We have one photo of Michael with his best friend Joseph Lonergan of Clonmore, Templemore.
We would be deeply obliged for any information that anyone Indeed, if you have knowledge of the Townland, Barony in which he came from that would be most helpful.
