At Easter 1916 he was in his early thirties. He fought with Eamonn De Valera in Bolands Mills but was killed in Clanwilliam House during Easter Week. He was survived by a wife and five children. One son, who was also called Patrick, was killed in an ambush during the Civil War. Both men are buried in the old St Nahi's graveyard in Dundrum. http://windyarbourplayground.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=193452085 193452085 The Dodder at Dusk This is a lovely place for a stroll on a summer's night. http://windyarbourplayground.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=193452086 193452086
