John Carolan

Image number: FH7

Date: Circa 1943

Location: Kilsallagh, County Mayo, Ireland

Description: John Carolan, brother of James Patrick; my great uncle. John was the eldest child and inherited the farm at Kilsallagh after the deaths of his parents. In 1911 he was 25 years old according to the Census of Ireland for that year. This means he would have been born circa 1885 and puts him in his late fifties at the time the photo was taken. The line visible down the right side of his face is due to some kind of damage to either the print or the negative.

Photographer: Dermot Carolan
