Dan head is my great great uncle. My name is Emma Louise McDonnell and I have heard from my father his story and it’s amazing to think I am related to this young brave man.

Hi there Emma Louise,
Thank you for getting in touch. He was a very brave young man and you should be proud. He personally inflicted the most injuries to the auxiliaries that day. Dan’s quick thinking saved the lives of Oscar Traynor & Paddy O’Daly. We were honoured last year to have Sharon Gray a great niece of Dan’s lay the main wreath at the commemoration.
