You have confused Neal Boyle with his brother Hugh Boyle. Hugh Boyle was born in Linlithgow, Scotland, in 1900 while his parents were in Scotland working at the potato harvest. He returned to Arranmore with them. His brother Neal worked his passage on ships and hitchhiked with the British army through Afghanistan down to the Bay of Bengal, where he took a ship to New Zealand and after working as a miner initially he later became a school janitor. That is all the information I have. I know this to be true because Hugh Boyle was my father. I met my uncle Neal once while he was on holiday from New Zealand, visiting my father in Rosyth.

Hi I am Angela Boyle daughter of Packie Boyle son of Michael who was Hugh and Neil's brother. Just received your answer to my request. Thank you for answering me and pointing out and filling up gaps. I cannot ask my father and your cousin, as he passed away in 2014. I have forgot my password and am using a different email address so finding this site hard to use because it's ages ago since I used it but would love to catch up with you Hugh x
