John Doyle of Birr
Looking for information on a John Doyle who rode in the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava.

Born about 1828, possibly at Birr parish, Offaly. He published a brief memoir in Manchester about 1877. Had a brother, Patrick

He enlisted in the 8th Hussars at Newbridge in 1850.

May have been related to Doyles in Birr in Griffiths Valuation.
