Excerpts from the "Writings of Brother E"

Ernest --- Ernie, the youngest son, was also affectionately known as Nen Nolan. Ernie received his education in the famous O’Connell School where I taught for over thirty years. I knew Ernie the best of all the family since there wasn’t a great disparity in our respective ages. After his schooling, he obtained a position in the same offices of the Great Southern Railway as his older brothers, Jim & Paddy. A keen footballer, he failed to return to his work after the dinner break and, being a Papist, of course was duly dismissed. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise because he subsequently obtained a very good job with the Cattle Exporting Company. He married Annie Kilcoyle, a lovely girl from the County Sligo. They had one child who is now Mrs. Pollock living on her own in Dunlaoire, County Dublin. Ernie and Annie lived a very happy married life. Unfortunately, Annie died unexpectedly in middle life and Ernie lamented her loss all his long life until he died at the age of eighty-two.Ernest --- Ernie, the youngest son, was also affectionately known as Nen Nolan.
