|Death:||9 November 2014|
|Age:||108 years, 158 days|
Luke Dolan was born on 4 June 1906 in Clonfree, Strokestown, County Roscommon, Ireland. Luke smoked and did not eat porridge until in his 60’s, but he appears to have long age and good health in his genes; his sister Mary Kate survived until her 107th year and sisters Nancy and Nora lived into their 90’s. He attributed his longevity to eating a boiled egg every day, a loving wife (Peggy passed away in 2005, aged 85) and sugar in his tea.
Luke Dolan passed away on 9 November 2014 at the age of 108 years, 158 days. He is still the oldest Irish man ever.
