Straffan Church of Ireland, Co. Kildare

Church of Ireland,
Co. Kildare,

Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837) tells us “STRAFFAN, a parish, in the barony of NORTH SALT, county of KILDARE, and province of LEINSTER, 3 miles (S. W.) from Celbridge, on the road to Naas; containing 727 inhabitants. ” and makes no mention of a Church of Ireland in Straffan.

These photographs were taken June 2014.

St. Mary’s Church, Carlow Town

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

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.

Attanagh Village, Co. Laois Photographs

There I was sure that all my older gravestone photographs are online and a few minutes ago I saw some photographs of the church in Attanagh posted to the The Country Church page on Facebook, so off I go to link that page in to my Attanagh Church photographs AND no photographs online!!  My index to the names that I could read out in Attanagh is online, but not the photographs :(

My apologies to anyone with an interest in Attanagh and here are photographs of the village but not the gravestones.  They’re going to take little while to get online as very few could actually be read and I want to check through them again.

Before I post these, the thing about Attanagh is that it is on the very very edge of Co. Laois as you travel from Durrow to Ballyouskill.  It’s probably only 3 or 4 kilometres from Durrow, 5 mins drive away.
