He was killed in action at the Glen of Arthlow. We believe he was on the lookout with Gerry Kiely in action in the Glen of Aherlow. Dan Breen threw out a granade and they were unaware and were killed from it. There is a small plack on the wall outside Rooneys pub in Lisfarnane . He was buried in Kilteely Churchyard, Kilteely, County Limerick.2
