  • Notes 


    • When Dom Placid Sinnott took Robert's sisters Elizabeth and Catherine, and their Rossiter cousin, to convents, Robert was taken to Douai in France but he contacted TB and was sent home.

      In the 1901 census Robert was as draper's assistant in Wicklow Town, County Wicklow. In the 1911 census he was a drapery salesman in Enniscorthy (this census records his birthplace as Enniscorthy). By 1924 he was in business as McHugh and Druhan, general drapers, Wexford.

      In 1941 he was present at the investiture of his sister Elizabeth as Abbess of Kylemore Abbey, Galway.

      In 1953 he was described in an article on the death of his sister Elizabeth (Abbess of Kylemore) as "the late Robert Druhan, Our Lady's Island, formerly of Messrs McHugh and Druhan, drapers and outfitters, North Main Street, Wexford".
