Hi - thanks for the siteWink My great great grandfather was a coastguard in Ringsend. James Reilly married to Ellen (helen) Devine. He died sometime before 1901. They lived on Pidgeon House road.
I'd love to know how he died and how long he was a coast guard for.

Hi there, I have recently moved to Co. Mayo & was hoping to find out some information about my Great Grandad who was a coastguard stationed at Youghal in the late 1800's early 1900's. His name was Patrick O'Brien & was married to Hannah (Lewis), I know of 2 children who were my Grandad Patrick Joseph O'Brien born 5/4/1915 & his sister May. He moved to be a coastguard in Budleigh Salterton (Devon, UK) shortly after 1915. Many thanks, Brett

Hi my great great grandfather John Blackmore was a coastguard in Ireland. I believe he was born 1839 or 1840. I have his coastguard long service medal and a Naval pension document showing a pension number. The pension was being drawn in Portaferry County Down. He died 1/5/1906 and is buried in Cloghy. I believe he was from Devon . Would like to know where he was born , when he became a coastguard and where he was stationed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, and thanks for considering this. My GG Grandfather was reportedly in the Irish Coastguard for a period between 1848 and 1856 but I cannot find any record to confirm this. His name was Edward John (or John Edward) McCarry. He was born in Donegal (Co) abt 1833. Can anyone help?
