William Crowley, of Kilmihil, Co. Clare. Hunger Striker

Trying to find info on my grandfather, William Crowley, of Kilmihil, Co. Clare.  He was involved and did a 29-day huger strike after capture sometime after 1920?  He was deported to the US in 1926 or 1927.  Any information would be grand.

    William –
    I have information on a Patrick and Michael Crowley who were interned in Wormwood Scrubs in April-May 1920 and on “hunger strike” but no address. Could there be any connection ? -let me know if you want further.

    Hi There,
    I have a significant number of Crowley relatives in Kilmihil, Co. Clare. Do you know who William’s parents were? Their names? My gr. grandfather was Thomas Crowley (b 11/22/1852); he had brother William Crowley b. 1873 in Clonakilla, Kilmihil, wife Norah Blackhall. Both buried in Kilmihil graveyard. If you have any further relatives that you know of, let me know and I’ll see if I have any matches. Anna

    Hi
    I have recently come across the website http://www.findmypast.ie
    The website is very tricky to use – I hope you can click on the following link. It is a pay website – but you can pay just a small amount of money for a few views . I found details of my Great Uncle who was on hunger strike and the records actually said he was conditionally discharged – the Govt would let them out of prison to recover and then they would be sent back. If you can’t click on the link email me miriam.geraghty@virgin.net
    Of course this William Crowley might not be yours. I am related to Anna above – Hi Anna!!!
    Good luck – Miriam

    My Crowleys are from Carncreagh, Kilmaley Parish. I noticed on the 1901 / 1911 Census that John Crowley from Clonakilla is renting land to Bridget Meere. Love to know if these Crowley’s are related!
