World War I medals found and handed to historian

By Echo Reporter

A TALLAGHT historian is looking for the owner of the two World War One medals which were found in a field close to Jobstown last year.

The two medals, which are on a chain, belonged to a man named Kinsella and the medals both have his name, service number and rank inscribed on them.

Jobstown Park  03

The medals were found in a field close to Jobstown and were handed over to local historian Micheál Whelan, who has an interest in the war.

Micheal told The Echo: “These were handed over to me after being found and they could have either fell off the person who was wearing them or maybe they were taken in a robbery and dumped.

“Whoever owns these will know straight away, they probably hold great sentimental value for somebody and I’d love to see them getting back to their owner.”

Contact Micheál on 087 4103764 or email
