christopher francis o'shea b.1897 d.1956 m.1925
He was my grandfather son of Patrick O'shea and his mother's name was katie I think . They lived in the kilsheelan area , ballyknockane I think. Christopher was born about 1897 I believe he fought in WW1 after lying about his age he may have been in the Irish army and/or english army after this. He may have been in an engineers regiment He moved to Hackney in London and married Margaret Burgen in 1925 she was born 1901.
He worked on the GPO tower in London and Holloway Prison in some sort of supervisory role.
Having lived in Ireland for 20 years I still don't have an Irish passport because I always wanted one from my roots but have never really had time , money or perseverance until now, where I have two of them anyway!
Any help would be most appreciated
