That's a shame - it may not rule out the Pierce/Peter in Carlow as the NY adult though!

This could be a complete red herring but there is a US WW2 Card for a Peter CAHILL
His date of birth is given as Jun 23 1895
Place of birth Carobuggy Ireland?

He was living at 242 S 3rd Avenue, My Vernon, NY
Next of Kin Mary of same address

Not sure where Carobuggy might be but the D0B is that of the Pierce I found!

There is a possibility that this is Peter registered as Pierce LINK #190; born Jun 23 1895

There was a Mary CAHILL born on Aug 15 1874 LINK

I don't see a death for a Pierce CAHILL or an entry on the 1901 census immediately

I wonder could it be referring to Boley near Ballylynan in Co Laois

My reasoning is based on the census in 1911 LINK showing a Peter CAHILL aged 14 with his widowed mother and siblings

There is a CAHILL family at the same address in 1901 LINK with the father still alive named John; however the matching Peter is now a grandson!

John CAHILL m Margaret KEALY on Feb 19 1867 in Wolfhill, Ballylinan

There seems to be at least 16 births to this combination of names from 1867 until 1887 which match in the place names and people's names.

I cannot see a Peter CAHILL however!

Julia CAHILL was the daughter of Maggie shown on the 1901 census.

Martin CAHILL m Julia PRICE on Jul 16 1919 and his address is shown as Boley, Ballylinan; granted in much clearer handwriting! LINK

Do you have a regimental number, date of birth, marital status, or any other information to help anyone willing to search for you?
The vagueness of the statement "looking for any info on patrick j walsh . In 1915 he was liven in irishtown st Brendans terrace. He was in the 2nd battalion royal enniskilen signed up around 1898 discharged in 1915" doesn't give much to start looking for him.

Was this the address on his discharge papers? As this may have been his intended address to live at but not connected to him i.e. that it was lodgings.

If he was discharged in 1915 I presume he was injured in some way as WW1 was ongoing.

Good find dathai
A copy of the civil record should show the father's names and possibly addresses that would be useful

It looks as if the couple were Jonathon BRUCE and Johanna McGRATH
although I do not see a marriage for them

If this is correct they had at least ten children who were baptised in Seirkieran

Baptism dates:
Robert Sep 13 1857
Mary Feb 27 1859
Anne (1) Jun 03 1860
John Oct 31 1861
Hanna Jul 04 1863
Kyran Jul 10 Civil record LINK
     note on the same page is the birth of Jonathan BRUCE to George BRUCE & Eliza BARBER
Sarah Apr 29 1867 Civil record LINK
Fanny Jan 22 1869 Civil record LINK
Johanna Jan 22 1869 Civil Record LINK
Anne (2) Jul 13 1872 Civil Record LINK

Do the ages of Hanna and Mary shown here match to your records?

A Margaret DALY m Andrew COUSINS on Feb 19 1911 LINK
Kate DALY and Patrick KERSHAW were the witnesses
Possibly Kate's sister

St. Joseph's catholic register is on line and show Margaret's mother as Anne LINK

As does Patrick and Anne's Catholic marriage registration

Link to 1911 census
