Castlereagh (Castlerea) Old Roman Catholic Gravestone Photographs, Co. Roscommon

Once I got to Castlereagh then I had to find the old Roman Catholic graveyard didn’t I?

It’s on a hill and I have to say it was very difficult to walk around even though the grass had been recently cut.  When I went in I did intend to photograph as many stones as I could *but* the layout, the difficulty of walking around cancelled out that idea.

I photographed as many Flanagan stones as I could see and then a few that stood out.  There is one stone with some wonderful work and I personally have not seen one like this before over in Laois.

This is a big graveyard and the remains of the old Catholic Church stand in the middle of it.  Really just the tower and bits of the walls

Castlereagh (Castlerea) Photographs, Co. Roscommon

I was off in Roscommon on Saturday because I am taking part in a photogrammetry course up there.  Mr. Gary Dempsey is the course instructor.  You can read a bit about this course if you go to Roscommon Cross Slab Priject – Photogrammetry Training (I’m hoping I have that link put in correctly and will be ever so appreciative if any of you who look at it find it faulty and let me know – thank you.

Of course I took photos all over, but not of the room we were in or our instructor Gary.  Given that I had driven almost two hours to get to Roscommon town I figured I’d stay and do a bit of photography before I headed back down to Laois.  I’d said on my Facebook page that I was off in Roscommon and Pat, one of my net friends told me she had family from Castlereagh.  So – Castlereagh was 29 kilometers and 26 mins from Roscommon town and off I went there for a wee visit.  I was just back from Rome where my friend had ‘walked’ me everywhere and the arthritis in my feet was not good so I wasn’t as patient as I normally am.  I can tell you all *don’t* go to the old graveyard in Castlereagh if you have arthritis, are in a wheelchair or are any such way impaired.  To walk around, it was probably the worst graveyard I have ever been in over all the years I’ve looked at stones.  When I was in the old Catholic graveyard, I took one or two photos to begin with, then I moved off to only taking photographs of stones with the surname Flanagan or the few that stood out as being unusual.

I’m breaking up my photos into three groups.

1. Castlereagh town

2. The Church of Ireland graveyard

3. The old Roman Catholic graveyard

Castlereagh town – I’ve given names to some of these photos and then others they’re just general and I’ve not named them.
