Thomas Tinneny (1899-1924) was the son of Francis Tinneny and Annie Dolan of Belturbet.  He enlisted in the Royal Irish Constabulary on April 11, 1921, having been recommended for service in the constabulary by District Inspector Hoare.  Thomas' serial number was 80444.  At the time he enlisted he was described as being from Cavan, 5'9" in height and 21.5 years old.  He was stationed at Wicklow June 5, 1921.  His military record indicated that Tommy had served in the Army prior to his enlistment in the Constabulary. 

At the time of his death, Thomas was stationed with the Constabulary in County Wicklow.  He died of his injuries at Steevens Hospital in Dublin on April 24, 1922.  He was 23 years old.  Tommy was buried in Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin on April 26, 1922.  Glasnevin is a cemetery, which I believe has a military section with the graves of many of the Royal Irish Constabulary.
