Roman Catholic Church, Ballyragget, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland.

According to the Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837) : “BALLYRAGGET, or DONOUGHMORE, a post-town and parish, in the barony of FASSADINING, county of KILKENNY, and province of LEINSTER, 8 miles (N. by W.) from Kilkenny, and 53 ¾ (S. W. by S.) from Dublin; containing 2609 inhabitants, of which number, 1629 are in the town. “

Also from Lewis “In the R. C. (Roman Catholic) divisions it is the head of a union or district, which comprises the parishes of Ballyragget, Ballyouskill, Rosconnel, and Attanagh, and parts of those of Durrow, Abbeyleix, Freshford, Burnchurch, and Kilmocar;. and contains two chapels, one at Ballyragget and one at Attanagh.”

These photographs were taken April 2014 and show that the current Church in Ballyragget was built in 1924.

The few gravestones around this church are for the Priests of the parish.  I have photographed them but they are not on this website yet.
