Killarney/Muckross graveyards
« on: Monday 15 February 16 17:51 GMT (UK) »
Hi folks, my wife and I will be visiting Killarney in spring to have a look for some family members who are buried in the area. I could do with a bit of help as to where they are!

Someone thinks they could be buried in Killegy graveyard, and also at Muckross cemetery. I believe they were Church of Ireland.

I have had a look at a map of Killarney graveyards, but can only find Aghadoe, Killaha and New Cemetery. I have found a map showing Killegy, but unsure where Muckross cemetery is. Some of the relatives were buried between 1874 and 1946.

Any help greatly appreciated>

Thanks,

John

Thanks to all for the links. I have already looked at all 3 without success. My ancestors were the Ross family. I have a lot of the death info etc from the genealogy sites, it is more a case of am I missing any old graveyards that are not on modern maps.

This is the site that gave me the location of Killegy. I am unsure whether Muckross Abbey and Muckross cemetery are one and the same.

Some people take some photos while at g/yards which helps others and donate them
