Friday's Photo: A Cemetery in New Quay, County Clare




I expected to find this cemetery near St. Patrick's Catholic Church. It wasn't far, about three quarters of a mile - one minute by car or a 15 minute walk. My husband's great-grandparents are said to be buried in Cillin Graveyard. It was anglicized as Killeen Cemetery in obituaries found in Irish newspapers 

You can see this cemetery up close, including photos of each gravestone, by visiting this link at Irish Graveyards. My husband's great-great grandfather, Patt Murray, is listed as being buried in the cemetery. Julia Murray Moylan and her family are buried very close to Patt Murray. There is no mention of my husband's great-grandparents, James Murray and his wife, Celia Linnane. However, it is very likely they are buried in the grave or same area as Patt Murray. The gravestone can no longer be read and I wouldn't be surprised if there are more names on the stone.

Church to the Cillin Graveyard located just
before you arrive at the New Quay National School.
