Clonegal, Carlow Gravestones

Roman Catholic Churchgrounds

These 76 photographs of gravestones in the grounds of Clonegal Roman Catholic Church were taken in August 2006.  All gravestones that could be read at that time were photographed.  There were a few stones which were illigible.

Some of these Clonegal photographs are close ups of the script on the stone.  All photographs are reduced in size. Full size and unwatermarked copies of these photographs are available (for use in records and printing) for a small fee as listed below.
Contact Dr. Jane Lyons with reference to the relevant gravestone(s), graveyard and county for further information.
3.50 Euro for 1 photograph
5.00 Euro for up to 3 photographs
10 Euro up to 8 photographs

Surnames have been given to each photograph and the photographs here are  in alphabetical order.  The number in each photograph indicates the number of times the surname has occurred as the first surname on a stone, e.g. Murphy 1 = first Murphy stone indexed.  Murphy 2 = second Murphy stone indexed.  Surnames which appear after the digit are other surnames which appear on the stone

Please check my surname index to see if I have found the surname you are interested in during research in other parishes.

Dunleckney (Bagenalstown, Newtown, Ballonkillen), Carlow

  Dunleckney, Marriage Index 1840

This is an index of the names of the people who were married in the Roman Catholic parish of Dunleckney (Bagenalstown, Newtown, Ballonkillen) during the year 1840.   The following table of marriages is transcribed from Microfilm No. 4195 held online by the National Library of Ireland accessible through their Roman Catholic Parish Register Search page.   All names and surnames given here are as I read them.  This section of the register is in English.

My list is sorted by the surname of the groom.  Question marks indicate letters or words I had a problem reading.  The letters ‘sic’ indicate that is how I read the letters I have typed.
[ ] indicates that the letters within the brackets are my best guess at what the letters might be.
I think there was an entry above that of James Brennan and Ann Neil which I could not read.  Mick Kearney and Ellen Lyons had Richard and Mary Lyons as their sponsors.

Townlands are given.

National Library of Ireland ref: Pos # 4195

Baptismal Index 1827 (complete) Donohoe & Mahan 1828, 1838

This set of parish records during the years 1827-38 include townlands from the following Civil Parishes:

Agha : Cloydagh : Killinane : Old Leighlin : Tullowcreen and probably Wells

Quite often, the same townland names are found in more than one parish. In such cases, it is assumed that the townland as listed in these parish records belongs to a civil parish that lies beside the civil parish of Agha. Where placenames do not exactly match a spelling as found in the 1851 townland directory the 1851 spelling is listed in the townland/civil parish table (see Townland Index ). The location (civil parish) of some townlands remains unidentified.

Index to Names found in the Roman Catholic Baptismal Register 1827 & Donohoe etc 1828, 1838

There was a total of 76 Baptisms recorded in this register for in 1827. Overall, the register was difficult to read, the name of the child and parents is listed, mothers maiden name, the name of the townland, and the names of two sponsors. Sponsor names are not included below.

April to June 1828 are almost impossible to read, the same for June and July 1828 and the entries from September to December 1828 are worse still, totally faded!

St. Mary’s Church of Ireland,
Carlow town,
Co. Carlow,
Ireland.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837) tells us of Carlow town parish in the 1830’s “The parish comprises 1955 statute acres, of which about 648 are plantations, a few acres bog, and the remainder good arable and pasture land. ” also of the Church of Ireland “The living is a rectory, in the diocese of Leighlin, and in the patronage of the Crown for two presentations, and of the Bishop for one: the tithes amount to £400. The church is a modern structure, with a beautiful spire terminating at an elevation of 195 feet, having a massive gilt cross presented by the ladies of Carlow: the Ecclesiastical Commissioners have recently granted £488. 4 shillings 10 pence for its repair.”

The Church graounds are locked up and it is difficult to get a good photograph of the church.  These are the best I could do and they were taken September 2014.

Cathedral of the Assumption,
College St.,
Carlow,
Co. Carlow.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us the history of Carlow town parish in the 1830’s “The parish comprises 1955 statute acres, of which about 648 are plantations, a few acres bog, and the remainder good arable and pasture land.” Also “The R. C. parish is co-extensive with that of the Established Church, and is the benefice of the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin. The R. C. cathedral is an elegant cruciform structure, in the later English style, with a lofty tower at the southern extremity of the transept, surmounted by a lantern of beautiful design terminating at a height of 151 feet from the base: it occupies the site of the old chapel, and is a rich ornament to the town.”

These photographs were taken Sept, 2014.

Roman Catholic Church,
Newtown,
Co. Carlow,
Ireland.

The script with the image of Our Lady on this Church says “I am the Immaculate Conception” so this church may be the Church of the Immaculate Conception. I’d appreciate it if anyone who sees these images and knows the name of the church would let me know. Thanks.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837) tells us that “AGHA, or AUGHA, a parish, in the barony of IDRONE EAST, county of CARLOW, and province of LEINSTER, comprising part of the market and post-town of Leighlin-bridge, and containing 1739 inhabitants. This parish is situated on the east side of the river Barrow, which is navigable to Waterford, and on the road from Carlow to Kilkenny.”  Also “In the R. C. (Roman Catholic) divisions it is partly in the union or district of Dunleckney, and partly in that of Old Leighlin: the chapel, situated at Newtown, is a handsome edifice lately erected. “

These photographs were taken 10th September 2014.

St. John’s Church of Ireland,
Nurney,
Co. Carlow,
Ireland.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837) tells us “NURNEY, a parish, partly in the barony of CARLOW, and partly in that of FORTH, but chiefly in the barony of IDRONE EAST, county of CARLOW, and province of LEINSTER, 2 miles (N. E.) from Leighlin-bridge, on the road to Tullow; containing 975 inhabitants, of which number, 284 are in the village.” and that “The church is a small neat building of hewn stone, erected in 1788, by aid of a gift of £500 from the late Board of First Fruits, and the Ecclesiastical Commissioners have recently granted £217 for its repair: the steeple was thrown down by lightning some years since.”

These photographs were taken 10th September 2014 when I stumbled across Nurney on my way to Fenagh in Carlow.  I had never even known there was a Nurney in Carlow before that!

These photographs were taken 30th July 2014.

I’d never been to St. Mullins in the past, never actually knew anything about it.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us “MULLINS (ST.), a parish, partly in the barony of BANTRY, county of WEXFORD, but chiefly in that of ST. MULLINS, county of CARLOW, and province of LEINSTER, 2 ½ miles (E.) from Graigue, on the road to Enniscorthy, and on the river Barrow; containing 5895 inhabitants. “

Also “Its name is derived from the ancient monastery founded here by St. Moling, or Mullin, at a place called Aghacainid, subsequently Teighmolin, or “St. Mullin’s House,” about the year 632, or, according to some historians, in the middle of the seventh century. St. Moling, being a native of this part of the island and of the royal race of Leinster, was afterwards made bishop of Ferns. “

It is a fascinating place, well worth the visit.  I’m just leaving the shots I took of the Church body and Monastery remnants in this post.
