New gravestone inscriptions on

FindMyPast Ireland has released a new record set comprising of gravestone inscriptions for nearly 41,500 individuals, most of them dating from between 1618 to 2005.

In each case, the full memorial inscription is included, so there are often details of other family members recorded. So, too, in some cases, are the cause of death and the profession of the deceased.

The areas covered by this data set are the counties of Cavan, Donegal, Fermanagh, Leitrim, Meath, Monaghan, Tyrone and Achill Island.

This record set was compiled by Eileen Hewson who dedicates much of her time to transcribing the details on memorials in Ireland, India and Sri Lanka, and is the founder of Kabristan Archives.
