Kilkenny City, a few photos

I’m over in Kilkenny so often and these are from a few years ago

St. Canice’s and the Round tower.  The greenish building WAS the Loreto Convent boarding school where I spent a few years and I just decided I had to take it for memory’s sake.  The rest mainly taken around Kilkenny Castle and then a note about the Shee house.

Heritage Treasure Trove, Laois

Treasure Trove – Heritage.  Laois

 

There is a ‘Treasure Trove’ relating to our Heritage in Co. Laois.  A friend of mine had told me that I really had to go and see this place and I am telling you now that it is incredible!!  The photos I have here don’t even do it justice.  The creator/owner of the Treasure Trove is of himself a Treasure also.

Some people know that I had 3 friends from the US staying in Sandymount House, Abbeyleix for 3 days last week.  The first day we met we headed off to Kilkenny, the 2nd day the plan was for me to bring them to the Rock of Dunamase (because that is an incredible Heritage treasure for Co. Laois).  En route, just as we got to a turn in Portlaoise I remembered that my friend had told me I had to go see this place and I changed route.

We got there, I spoke to the owners son he let us into the building and then telephoned his father to tell him that he had visitors.  His father returned and I have to say I was so glad.  As I’ve said he is a Treasure of himself and he walked all around telling my friends the history of every object – not exactly everything because there is so much ‘stuff’ there that it would take you a week to get round it all and even then you still would not be finished!!

My photographs do not do the Treasure Trove justice.  Light was bad and I only had my little camera with me.  Some of these photos may include my friends Sue, Mary and Phil.

Enjoy –  as we did :)

My ‘Header’ photograph on this page is of a Trolley which was used in St. Vincent’s Hospital, Athy, Kildare to transfer bodies to a paupers grave during the Great famine.

Ossory Show 2016. Trucks

Ossory Show, 2016

Trucks and Truckers

The Ossory Show 2016 was a different event for me – here are some photos of the Truck Show section.

I’d never seen a ‘Truck Show’ before and I didn’t know what to expect.  It was really interesting as I stood on top of one of the garden beds and watched a bunch of trucks come up the road blowing their horns like as if they were all excited to have finally found the show.  I did hear at one point that a few of the trucks were off in Mountrath because they were lost, didn’t know where the show grounds were, and it was the arrival of this bunch of trucks that I am talking about. Unfortunately, I can’t show the excitement, what it felt like to watch them all arrive, photographing them as they drove in.

For me though, the nicest bit was when I ‘bumped’ in to Johnnie and Holly.  I didn’t know who they were, they were just two gorgeous children playing together or around the trucks.  The three of us sat and chatted and we talked about how children should not talk to adults and that even though I was taking their photo for them I couldn’t put that photo on the internet.  I told them that I’d get a copy of my photo to them.

Maybe I should make the title of this page – “Johnnie” :)

I kept photographing as I do, and then I saw this wee little truck, a ‘baby’ truck, parked between two grown up trucks and I thought ‘wow’.  Then, I learned that the little truck actually works, I think it has a wheelchair engine AND that it belongs to Johnnie.  Later, Seamus asked me if I would photograph the truckers receiving their cups and I said “No, problem” and ok, they had a professional photographer but that didn’t bother me because I was just taking photos.  I’d get a shot of the people who came first and second but not the person who came third because the professional would get all three people to stand with their backs to the crowd.  So, I took photos of the trophy recipients as they came off the stage.  These are all off the cuff photos and some of them are not that perfect.

As I was watching & photographing the ceremony I realised that Johnnie and his mother were standing beside me.  I told him Mam (Sandra) that I had photographed Johnnie and Holly and I gave her the name of my website and asked her to email me so that I could send her copies of those photos.

THEN, next thing, Johnnie was called up to the stage – his dad went with him and he was told he was being given an award BUT that the group did not have a trophy for him right now, they would get one to him.  I took photos.

I’m only getting the photos online now BUT the other night, Sandra emailed me and told me that Johnnie had received his trophy.  I asked her if I could have a copy of a photo of him with his trophy and she said that she would get  a photo of Johnnie, his truck and his trophy.

I have put the photo of Johnnie, his truck, his trophy and his Dad as my header photo here now.   To me, that photo speaks a million words. I hope any truckers who read this page, come to see these photos will agree with me.

It was a pleasure to photograph the trucks and truckers, it was a bigger pleasure to have met Johnnie and see his truck.  Shouldn’t say this, showed my son the lead photo of Johnnie, Truck, Trophy & Dad  tonight and he said “That’s the luckiest boy in the world”

Bodyke Gravestones, Clare.

Roman Catholic Churchgrounds

These 37 photographs of gravestones in the grounds of Bodyke Roman Catholic Church were taken in November 2006.  These are just a selection of stones as I did not cover the whole graveyard.

Some of these Bodyke 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. Malone 1 = first Malone stone indexed.  Malone 2 = second Malone 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.

Abbeyleix Church of Ireland Gravestones

Abbeyleix Church of Ireland Gravestones

These 198 photographs were taken in July 2007.  All gravestones that could be read at that time were photographed.  There were a few stones which were illigible.

During the 1995-96 period Abbeyleix Church of Ireland graveyard was visited and all stones which had a date that was pre 1901 were transcribed.  That is all information that could be read from those stones was written down.  By 2007 when the stones were photographed some of the stones read in the earlier years may no longer have been legible.  Please consult the document which contains the typed up material from 1995-1996.

Some of these 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 phorographs here are *almost* 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. Galbraith 1 = first Galbraith stone indexed.  Galbraith 8 = eighth Galbraith stone indexed.

Please note that it has been my finding that members of the Church of Ireland quite often live in one parish but then ‘go home’ to the place their family came from when they die.  That is they are taken from the parish they lived in and brought to the parish their family came from to be buried.  If you expect to find a family in this graveyard and don’t, please consult my name index to see if the surname you are looking for occurs in another parish.

Bourney, Tipperary

Bourney Church of Ireland Graveyard. Name Index

You will find an index to the names of people from memorial stones which are in the Church of Ireland graveyard in Bourney, Co. Tipperary.  Roman Catholics have in the past been buried in Church of Ireland graveyards as was the law.  Please don’t forget that.

An index to the names of people which appear in stones in the Church of Ireland graveyard at Bourney, Co. Tipperary.  Some of the stones were illegible at the time I was there but these stones will be re-visited in the Summer of 2016.  My index has question marks for those details that could not be read on the stones, these will also be checked during the Summer of 2016.  The table will then be changed if needs be.
e.s.= erected stone ; n.g.=not given

The table headings are as follows: Name : Surname : Date of Death : Year : Age at death : From : Stone name.

When I load the photographs to go with this index the photographs will not be linked to the index.  The photographs unlike earlier photographs on this web site will carry the surnames that are on the stone, these are the ‘stone name’.  Every time a surname occurs then the stone receives a different number, e.g. here in Bourney there are 3 stones with the surname Benn.  The first stone I read with the surname is Benn 1 , the next stone I read with that surname is Benn 2 and the third stone with the surname Benn on it had a second surname, Hoffler.   That stone became Benn 3 Hoffler.

Clogh Village, Kilkenny

Photographs

One of the days last year my daughter and her husband were on their way down to Clough the village I live in.  I think they were using the map on their phone and they commented on how they were going a different way to the way I go.  Then, they arrived in Clogh, Co. Kilkenny.  Clough, Co. Laois and Clogh, Kilkenny are separated by a 30 minute drive.  That was the time that they realised we have more than one place of the same name in Ireland and when they told me this I laughed and replied we have more than one place of the same name in each county!!
I went off to Clogh, Kilkenny deliberately in 2013 to see how they spell the name of their village took photographs of Clogh and then began photographing the gravestones in the Roman Catholic graveyard.  I have about 2/3rds of the graveyard photographed and almost completely indexed.  Come this Summer, I’ll get it all finished.
