Skibbereen Heritage continues graveyards work

Back in May Irish Genealogy News reported the upload of two graveyard video tours from the Skibbereen Heritage team (see blogpost). As the Lockdown continued, two more burial grounds were filmed and are now available to view on YouTube:
Video tour of Aughadown graveyard
Video tour of Abbeystrowry graveyard

Other work carried out by the team this summer has seen the installation of new permanent signs at Caheragh Old Graveyard and St Mary's Graveyard. These provide a brief history of the sites and list the names of those interred within, and have been erected with the support of Cork County Council. Follow the links to find out more about these historical burial grounds.

Skibbereen Heritage Centre's excellent Famine exhibition is now open for visitors. Genealogy visitors are also welcome, but in both cases, appointments are now necessary.
