The link for MayoMemorialPeacePark.org sends one to a site focused on HGH and appears they are selling growth hormones.

If there's a better link, please let us know.

Thanx

The site has Obviously been hijacked over the years  :)
Hallmark has given you the link. I haven't been for a few years but am hoping to visit it this summer.

See Image 5/15 - he is listed under Castlebar

It seems to be the right Thomas according to Nurmal's  earlier post.

Was looking through the Internet for information on Thomas Frain and cane across your post. I am Bridget Frains Granddaughter.


I am almost certain that I am your second cousin. My Grandfather was John Frain who was Thomas's brother.  Over the years I have collected some material about the family and am currently trying to write it up for my grand children. The only information I have about your grand mother is a record of her marriage from the local registry. I have attached a copy. I understand that several of her nephews/nieces stayed with her in Aston when they emigrated but I have no details.

I have copies of some of Thomas's service records, a photo of his service medal. His memorial is on Pier and Face 15 A of the Thiepval Memorial. His birth cert records his birth date as 20 February 1914 at Dooghery (probably a misspell). The use of some variant of Dooghery in their address has given rise to a lot of misunderstanding.  The correct address is Carrownaraha.  Tradition is that  the Frains (great-grandfather) originated in East Mayo. Places, that I remember being mentioned, were Barnacogue mountain (site of Knock Airport) and nearby Kilkelly, Swinford and Kiltimagh.  There is an area called Doogary just outside Kilkelly. Perhaps the house was named after Doogary to indicate that this was the John Frain from Doogary.


Is this material of any interest to you?  Nurmal, who started this conversation is also a second cousin of ours. I was in contact with him some time ago but he has no recent  posts

Hello frainj,

Welcome to RootsChat.

Nurmal should have received notification of your reply but will just check for you. Yes the notification has gone through, hopefully they should reply very soon.

Regards
