My Grand uncle Tom Fitzpatrick was married to Margaret Cody from Maheragh Inch Thurles. she died early in this century about 1916. We have in our possession a medal from WWI commemorating the death of Patk Fitzpatrick ... I cannot find any evidence that Tom was his brother but I think he was.... I think there is a connection to the Fitzpatrick family in Thurles. Tom lived in a place called Ardkeen in the parish of Drom.
