Hello Joanne,My name is Nigel Gartland your great uncle you mentioned is my great grand father.I just sent a e mail to my uncle and he replied that yes his grand father, Matthew Gartland died about 15 years ago and he thinks he was 97 when he died.I dont know much about him only my dad and uncles nicknamed him 'the gangst' because whenever the relations from wicklow were ever around they drove these old fashioned gangsters cars,he was in WW1 and he used to tell my dad he killed a Turk with the sword thing on his riffle.His son,my grand father,Paddy Gartland left wicklow and joined the army when he was young and moved to clonmel and got married etc. where he is still living today.Matthew lived wit Paddy right up till he died,i think.I could ask my dad the weekend to find out some more info if you want.
