There are five graveyards in Kilmihil parish, the most recent being Reilig Nua meaning “New Graveyard”. The graveyards are maintained by the Community Employment Scheme under the leadership of Michael Lineen.
In 2005/6 Noleen Cleary, Noreen McGuane, Ann Cahill, and Dolores Murray undertook the initial examination and recording of over 3000 headstones, a slow and difficult task as many headstones were illegible or had no markings left.
Thanks are now due to Carmel Dolan and Mary Downes who undertook an update of the registers in 2018/19. The new records are in the process of being loaded. Do check them even if you have looked at the 2005 records as many graves previously unmarked or with illegible gravestones will have had new or upgraded stones added.
Please remember that only the writing on the headstone is recorded in the register, there may be errors and if you find any please let us know and we will correct them.
