Clare Co Library adds Killaloe headstone transcriptions

Transcriptions of headstones in the graveyard of St Flannan's Cathedral in Killaloe have been donated by Eugene O'Brien to Clare County Library and are now available for free viewing on the library's website.

The headstones record deaths from 1692 to 2010; many of the inscriptions are surprisingly long and contain a lot of genealogical detail. Photos accompany the 882 inscriptions.

The main family names in this collection are Collins, Hayes, Lynch, Niall, Ryan, Scanlon and Smyth.
