Kinvara Company Irish Volunteers Centenary Commemoration 1916 -2016

My husband's grandfather, William Joseph Quinn, was an Irish Volunteer with the Kinvara Company and we will have the privilege of attending this commemoration in Kinvara. 

William Quinn was born on May 30, 1894 in the townland of Caherawoneen, Parish of Kinvara, County Galway, Ireland. His parents were William Quinn, a farmer who died in 1903, and Bridget Brannelly. William served as an Irish Volunteer from 1914 until sometime in 1920 or 1921. 

I look forward to learning more about the Quinn family and their lives during that time in Ireland.
