PATRICK GIBNEY WW1
« on: Wednesday 10 August 22 22:49 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find the burial place of PATRICK GIBNEY who died on 4 April 1918 after war service with the Leinster Regiment. Aged 28, he died at Thurstianstown, Co Meath at the home of his aunt Ellen Grogan. Ellen Grogan appears to have been his next of kin.

Patrick died as a result of illness incurred on war service but was not commemorated as a war casualty.

Can anyone out there help me to find where Patrick Gibney is buried?

Unable to help with where he was buried, but for others reading here's the link to his death record. His record indicates that he was 26 yrs old.

This site https://meathhistoryhub.ie/slane-area-graveyards/ mentions a Grogan family grave in Fennor, which is not a million miles away from Thurstianstown. It might be worth contacting whoever is in charge of that graveyard's records to check is he in the Grogan family grave.

At the time of Patrick's death 1919 the war of independence was just starting so a low profile was probably kept him being a British soldier.
However a good few of the Gibney's and Barron's appear to be buried in Donore Graveyard,Drogheda.
