Hi

What surname are you looking for?

If you have a date of death you could contact the supervisor at
Rathcooney who is really helpful.

To get his no, contact the Cork County Council, ( Water Dept -they look after the cemeteries section) and they will give you his mobile no.

Let me know the surname and I will see if I have a photo of the
headstone you are looking for.

Hi Topsy,

I went through the photos I have for Rathcooney and nothing for O'Donoghue.

I photographed most of the legible headstones in the older cemetery which is on one side with a very old church ruin.   Across the road is a very large new cemetery which I didn't do.

I will PM you the supervisor's name and mob no.

Hi Mary, I'm new to the RootsChat forum and am hoping you might be able to help. I was doing a general internet search for Rathcooney cemetery (for images) and stumbled across this thread. Having read it I signed up. You've photographed a lot of the legible headstones in the old part? I'm looking for the grave of a man called Thomas Dowd b approx 1830 d 1893. He is my great great grandfather's brother.

Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Just had a look at my Rathcooney photos and I don't have any for Dowd or O'Dowd.  There is one for O'Dowda which I think is
the Irish for O'Dowd.  It is for a William Norbury O'Dowda who died in 1929. 

Sorry I can't help

Not at all, no problem. Thanks for trying, it was worth a shot. We know he's there anyway. Is there a register of burials anywhere do you know?

Hi Mary,

I am looking for a grave for an Ellen (Farrell) Kelly who probably died between 1911 and 1915.  Do you know of any Kelly graves there, or should I contact the CCC?  Also, which church is the cemetery associated with?  Would it be a good idea to ring the church office?   

I am heading to this cemetery in May to find this stone but would love to make sure it exists before I hunt for hours...

Thanks
