[Torrens List] Military record

The Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin was like the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, London; old and wounded soldiers were looked after there. Apparently it also administered the payment of pensions, presumably if the soldier came back to retire in Ireland

I found (in the National Archives index) a record of a Thomas Torrens or Terrence b. Aughadery (obviously Aghadowey) discharged in 1814 aged 48

The index says where he served but it's not clear whether this was a pension or a military hospital case

Anyone any theories about which family he was from? bearing in mind that he may have said he was from Aghadowey and may in fact have been from another local parish which he might have thought wouldn't have been so recognizable' eg Kilrea
