Dungarvan Observer 26 January 1918

Out of Danger

The many friends of Mr. John Barron, the Square, Cappoquin, will be pleased to learn that he is now out of danger after his recent severe illness.  Mr. Barron, who is ship’s corporal on H.M.S. Revenge, arrived home on leave on New Year’s Day and was no sooner at the old homestead when he was stricken down with a fit of appendicitis, and has been under the care of Dr. William White.

Mr. Barron, prior to the outbreak of hostilities, was a constable in the R.I.C. and was stationed at Courtmacsherry, Co. Cork.  He is a splendid oarsman and was a prominent member of Cappoquin Rowing Club, and many a time brought victory to the famous “Dark Blues”.  He is brother to Gunner J. Barron, R.G.A., who was wounded twice, and also brother of Driver W. Barron, R.F.A., who was killed about 12 months ago in action.  The three plucky Cappoquin men are sons of Mr. John Barron, baker, of Cappoquin.
