There is no Patrick Conlogue listed on Cowan Park or any local memorials, There is Patrick Kinlouge listed on Cowan Park and St Johns Barrhead Church memorials, I believe Patrick Conlogue was a parishioner at St John's (Not far from Nitshill) and his name has been transcribed onto the Cowan Park and St John's Memorials in error as Patrick Kinlouge.
Note: There are no records of a Patrick Kinlouge on any WW1 records.
