Hi Ady
Couldn't wait. Just returned from the Library. William wasn't on the list of absent voters either as O'Grady or Grady.
I did go on to the Burgess Roll and discover that he was resident at 22 Upper Quarry Rd until the 1912-13 edition. Someone else appears at that address in the next edition. I'm presuming, since women didn't have the vote then, that his wife and child moved from the house (assuming he enlisted) or that the entire family moved on.  Hmmmmmm
Cheers, Michael   :)

My great grandfather from Co.Waterford was  William O Grady.He may have had military training.He was involved with the I.R.A..Kept  a low profile.He was married also to an Alice Dunne.I wonder if it could be the same person.His fathers name was William not John.Cant find any record of him any place.
