Patrick Doyle was the local hero who taught Gaeilge and marksmanship as well as managing staff at the Dublin Laundry, which was right across the river from our new playground. 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.
