Notes:

 

This page came about largely through the passion of John 'Sean' O'Donnell (RIP John, 2008)

He visited the main graveyards in Templecrone, taking photographs of virtually every headstone

On this page you will find his photographs, supplemented with my transcriptions

Thankyou John - we miss you

 

Other headstone photographs have been submitted by Malcolm Mills & Mary O'Donnell Mulcahy
