AN UPDATE TO BARTHOLOMEW MILLERICK, A YOUNG KILDARE SOLDIER

An update to Bartholomew Millerick, a young Kildare soldier

Kildare Library and Arts Service received a recent email from the daughter of Bartholomew Millerick, Ruth McAleese.

I was delighted to read the story regarding Bartholomew Millerick – ‘Young Kildare Soldier’s Career’ – posted in January 2010. He was my father. Bartholomew Millerick married Sarah McIntyre Morson (born 9 February 1899, in Glasgow) in St. Rollox on 1 January 1923. Both are now deceased.
The couple had six children. Their first child, a boy named Anthony, died in infancy. There was a girl born next, who also died shortly after birth. The next girl, Patricia Joan Millerick, was born on 11 December 1934. She is still alive and has a son Jonathan, born 19 August 1971. There were two other boys, who also died under the age of three.
I was the last born, Ruby Sapphire Millerick – born 17 August 1941 – now known as Ruth McAleese.
