Remembering Sir Thomas Myles

Patrick Comerford

The Church of Ireland notes in The Irish Times this morning [Saturday 12 July 2014] and on the Church of Ireland website news page include the following paragraph :

On Thursday evening at 8.30pm, in Kilcoole Golf Club, the Kilcoole Heritage Group will host a talk by the Revd Professor Patrick Comerford, from the Church of Ireland Theological Institute, who will speak about Sir Thomas Myles and his role in the Kilcoole gun-running. The organisers of the gun running were mainly members of the Church of Ireland, including Sir Thomas Myles whose yacht, the Chotah, was used. He was an elder brother of the Very Revd E.A. Myles, Rector of Tullylish in Co Down and Dean of Dromore.
