On meeting his wife Babe Hennessy, he went to England where he settled in Bristol to begin a new life.
After a number of years abroad he returned to Clonbanane where Babe’s mother resided and there be began another chapter of his life.
He was a most industrious worker caring for his family and was a popular member of his community. He loved to walk the fields with his dog and had a great interest in racing and especially enjoying his many trips to Cheltenham.
