Records of Old Cemetery row by row

Killererin Heritage Society

The following are the records of row 1 of the old cemetery in Killererin. We are indebted to all the people over the years who took the time and trouble to record the graveyards but unfortunately a lot of those records were lost over time. The Heritage society decided that it was necessary to start from the beginning again and Eileen O’Connell, Dangan and Bernadette Forde, Togher took on that task.

Bernadette took all the photos and and Eileen recorded the number of graves from old lists and listed the unmarked graves which hadn’t been previously recorded.  Together we tried to decipher the inscriptions some of which were impossible to read.  We were helped enormously too by local people like Owen Jennings who works for the Ordnance Survey and provided us with an aerial view of the old graveyard and is carrying out ongoing work on our behalf.  Also Moylough Parish Services provided community workers in the past to take records, most notably John Coyle who contributed his work to our parish history.  We also will be getting help from local people to fill in some of the gaps and some of this information has begun to flow in already.  It would not be completed without their help and we hope it will become a collaborative community project.

Killererin Heritage  Society will be hosting an event in May for the Bealtaine festival and as part of that we will be asking people for their help in identifying as many unmarked graves as we possibly can.

Below is the first row starting just inside the little gate as you enter from the church grounds (St. Mary’s Church, Killererin)
