William Casey

Bank: Ulster Bank

Place of work: Ballyhaunis branch

Died: 23 October 1916


William Joseph Martin Casey was born in Dublin in 1893, the son of Dr Charles Casey, a medical doctor, and his wife Mary. He was educated at Castleknock College, and later went to work for Ulster Bank.


In February 1916 Casey left his job at the bank's Ballyhaunis branch to join the army, serving in the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. Corporal Casey was killed in action in France on 23 October 1916. He was 23 years old, and the tenth Ulster Bank man to be killed in the war.


William Casey is commemorated on two memorials at Ulster Bank’s Belfast head office: its roll of honour for staff who served in the First World War and its memorial for those who fell.
