  • St. Mary and St. Anne Catholic Cathedral. St. Anne's Shandon is the Protestant Church of Ireland church of Shandon Bells fame. It is easily confused with St. Mary's and St. Anne's the Catholic Cathedral which is within a stones throw of it. There is no cemetery attached to either Church. I don't know if there are vaults in the Catholic Cathedral. As for records someone else earlier wrote that the records at St. Mary's and St. Anne's were in process of being computerized offsite and that only the records dating from 1900 were aavailable at present on site.
