Rathsaran Gravestone Photographs, Co. Laois

Rathsaran gravestone photographs, Laois

Church of Ireland,
Rathsaran,
Laois.

This church is in the Church of Ireland parish of Rathdowney. These photographs were taken between 2008 and 2009. This section is only the older section of the graveyard. The modern section has not been photographed.

We are giving you close up images of the gravestone photographs in some instances.  All gravestone photographs are reduced in size in order to allow us have copies of all photographs on this site.  We have a full photograph of each stone as well as the close ups.  From-Ireland.net charge 3 Euro to email you a copy of a photograph or set of photographs.

Contact From-Ireland.net to purchase a High Quality JPG of any gravestone for €3.00.

The surnames which are on the gravestones are given as the names of the gravestones.  Each stone will have a number on it indicating the number of times that the first surname has been found on any stones., e.g. if a stone had the surname Lyons as the first surname on the stone then the stone becomes Lyons 1.  If I find another stone with the surname Lyons on it in a different plot then this becomes Lyons 2.  If there are other surnames on the stone then these surnames come after the number.
The letters a, b or others after a number indicate that there were a number of gravestones on one plot and these all belong together

One thing needs to be mentioned here, I transcribed by hand all the information on stones in Rathsaran back in the 1996-98 period.  I created word documents of this information and you will find these documents on this website at the following link. The wording on older stones here will be in that document if I was able to read them at that time.  Be sure to check the document.

Ireland.

According to Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837): RATHSARAN, a parish, in the barony of UPPER OSSORY, QUEEN’S county, and province of LEINSTER, 2 ¾ miles (W.) from Rathdowney, on the road from Dublin to Thurles; containing 868 inhabitants.

Rathsarn was actually one of the first graveyards for which I transcribed the stones back in the 1996-98 period

These photographs were taken June 2008

Rathsarn (Rathsaran) Gravestone Transcriptions

Please note, the gravestone transcriptions were made in the 1996-98 time period, the photographs were not taken until 2008.  In the ten year time frame some stones will have become illegible, therefore if you think your family are or might be buried in Rathsaran and cannot see a photograph with your name on it, please go to the transcriptions as I may have been able to read the stone at that time and have the information in that document.
