Nolan-3208 has no meaningful sources. Could that be part of the issue?

The merge has been completed by the other manager.

You simply may have had an edit conflict while the merge was being completed.

edit: As a relatively new member, you may not know that merges are processed manually. You should give the other manager(s) sufficient time (up to 30 days) to review the proposed merge and to respond.

I would guess that the profile manager of Nolan-2743 is rejecting the merge because you have no sources or place details on Nolan-3208, so at the moment it is impossible to tell if they are the same person. I suggest you add a source to Nolan-3208 like the 1911 Ireland Census (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QYV6-SK3Z), which shows that the Patrick Nolan (Nolan-3208) who has siblings called Dora, Mary, Johanna, Thomas and Bridget is the same as the Patrick Nolan (Nolan-2743) who is the son of Daniel Nolan and his wife Kate and was born in 1902 in County Kerry. That will hopefully be sufficient for the other profile manager to be able to see that they are the same person and agree to the merge.
