Information  Request  

The following email was received:

“Dear Sir/Madam,

I am looking to find out any information and to see if there is a photo of a native son of Borrisoleigh, namely Fr. James Williams, CC who was born in Borrisoleigh, Co. Tipperary circa 1862. He was the son of John Williams and very likely came from a place called Coolataggle (Coolatagal).  He was of the Augustinian Order and served at Marlborough Street, Dublin in 1901, Fethard, Cashel from at least the years 1904-1907, at Donnybrook, Dublin, in 1907 and as Howth Parish Priest from around 1918. He was the Catholic parish priest of Howth during WWI and endeavoured to help the victims of the sinking of two local fishing vessels at that time of which I am writing about.  He was mentioned in the 1911 Census of Ireland, local newspapers and in documents in National Archives of Ireland.  Any information which you may find locally would be very much appreciated.  I thank you sincerely in advance for any efforts to help me find some information on this generous soul.  I may  be contacted at  delamuse@hotmail.com

Kindest regards,

Seán T. Rickard, MA

Companion of the Naval Order of the United States”
