Brien, William Thomas. (Meath, Waterford).
Rank: Private.
Regiment or Service: Royal Irish Regiment.
Unit: A Company 5th Battalion.
Service No: 3428.
Date of death: 16/08/1915.
Age: 23.
Born: Randalstown, County Meath.
Enlisted: Longford.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Residence-Portlaw.
Death: Killed in Action in Gallipoli.
Next of kin, etc: Son of William Thomas and Sarah Sophia Brien, of Ardkeen, Waterford.
Grave/Memorial: Panel 55.

There are two Keatings, both named Thomas killed in the war from Waterford, but no mention of Kill, Trinity Without or Newtown in their readout.
Remember half of Carrick-on-Suir is in Tipperary. I only looked for Carrick-on-Suir in Waterford for you.
Cheers.
 Tom.

Thanks for your time, Tom. Although none of these seems like a match, I appreciate the effort.

Hi Tom I have seen the names of some P Kiely or Patrick Kiely who died in WW1 in your book.I am trying to find more info about them Which was born in Waterford and parents' names. I think one might be my granduncle and I am planning to visit the Somme later in the year.  No luck with War Graves Commission of British Armed Forces records Have you any suggestions for how I might proceed .Thank you.

Hello Ter.
 Both Patrick Kiely's were born on Waterford, one in Dungarvan and one in Waterford. Their records did not survive but if you go on Ancestry and look up register of soldiers effects you may find the answer to your query.
 Kind regards.
 Tom.

Hi Tom
I followed your suggestion to check Soldiers Effects on Ancestry and eureka!. Found that Patrick Kiely Service Number 119621 is indeed my granduncle and I hope to visit his grave in France in Sept. It was so moving to recognise all the names of those who received his effects. Thanks again for all your work and help.  By the way had been posting as Ter 29 !
