These 76 photographs of gravestones in St. Mary’s, Castlecomer, Kilkenny were taken in 2007.  All gravestones in St. Mary’s, Castlecomer were photographed but many were illegible.

The surnames which are on the gravestones in Castlecomer 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 gravestone in this graveyard in Castlecomer, e.g. if a stone had the surname Lyons as the first surname on the stone then the stone becomes Lyons 1.  If another stone with the surname Lyons on it is found 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

We are giving you close up images of the gravestones 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.
