J Company (Castlebar Town No. 2)

When Castlebar ‘A’ Company became too large and unwieldy in 1921, it was decided by the Battalion O/C to form a new company in the town. Many of the names given for this new company are also to be found in the list for the original ‘A’ Company, and this has led to an amount of confusion.
