Glad you like it Cait. You may like my other cemetery site too:

As the research is time consuming as you can imagine, both sites are ongoing, and many pages have yet to be updated.

Another great site Hartman, I have seen a few names from my family tree mentioned..aahh!! so going to check them out soon.
Its like each time we visit Ireland we have taken photos of the Cemetarys and Churches...most of the headstones have tributes still visible even though they are over 100yrs old....cheers Cait

Here you are JarraLass. I think you can work out the orientation yourself.

A pic I took on Sunday of Father Meynell's Gravestone.He was the first Priest at St Bedes.I think it's time the Parishoners of St Bedes gave it a bit of a spruce up

Hi, dont know if you still post here? But here goes.
My relation James McNulty died on 22nd January 1869 - where is he likely to be burried? He lived in Union Street.
