Dr Richard B. Hennessy
Richard B. Hennessy, Doctor at the front in France
Letter from Richard Hennessey to Tom Kavanagh 1/6/18 Dear Tom, I'm writing just to ask you to use your influence with Martin and John Meagher on my behalf. Dr. Powell of Roscrea is about to resign- and I'm going for his job. I don't think that the Meaghers are in my favour since I went out to France - but I'd have gone just the same at that time if the Japs and Chinese were at it - besides my work was an act of mercy. But you never know in what light the Guardians may look at it.................
Dr Richard B. Hennessy from Tipperary was a doctor at the front in France. He thought that he may face opposition from local republican members of the Board of Guardians when applying for a job. Many returning soldiers had difficulty getting jobs on their return due to prejudice against the British Army in a changed Ireland.
