Hello to kmuttleyjr in particular, I suspect that the army details you supplied, refer to the Irish Republican Army of about 1920. A difficult time for many in Ireland, what with independence and then civil war. Many people just wanted to get on with their daily lives and not get politically involved. My understanding was that Glen was not exactly a hotbed of activity although some young men of the parish may have been tempted by political persuasion to travel beyond Glen and take part in creating Irish history.

Kmuttleyjr. It sounds as though Your John Joseph and Hugh would have been one generation before the John Joseph and James John that I mentioned. Since they were aged 14 and 12 at the 1911 census, they seem just the right age to have served at the time of independence and civil war.

My father, my grandparents and my great grandparents all lived at No 8 Braade Upper. Next door was another Curran family but not relatives.
Our ancestors lived across the street from one another. Yours in house 8 snd mine in house 6 & 7.

I know this is an old thread, but I saw it and couldn't help but reply. My ancestors lived in House 9 in Braade Upper. Don't know what was in the water there, but apparently it's turned us all genealogists.
