William Bates – hello and welcome


Welcome to this site, which honours the memory of Willie (William) Bates (1910 – 1994), a mariner and fisherman from Kilmore Quay in the South East corner of Ireland.

A website was developed by his family, to mark the centenary of his birth on 24 January 2010. This blog is a follow up to this former site and will contain more extensive content, including family photographs and aims to provide a memorial  to a life well lived.
