Biography

A painter and decorator by trade, William McGill served as lieutenant in the Dunmore Company of the Irish Volunteers’ Galway Brigade. He was arrested during Easter week, 1916, whilst attempting to reach the mobilisation centre in Tuam. He was afterwards interned in Wakefield Prison and Frongoch prison camp until December 1916. McGill helped to reorganise the Volunteers in his local area following his release but, having suffered from ill health since his internment, developed pneumonia and died in February 1919.
