Thanks for that, I have had good success on that page. Eliza Ross is one of the relatives, but unfortunately it just given burial details as Killarney, nothing more specific. A very useful site though, many thanks.

Yes... but then you can search newspapers in Kerry for obits!

I have had confirmation from a relative that the graveyard in question is Killegy, in Killarney. The family called that Muckross cemetery as it is nearby.

Apparently some other relatives died in Killarney, but are buried in Kilbeacanty near Gort in Galway.

I have had a quick look for some obits in the Kerry newspapers, but not come across anything yet - there doesn't seem to be a lot for Kerry.

Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction

Just a late thank you. My wife and I found both her grandparents grave in Kilbeacanty and her great grandparents grave in Killarney. Another trip is planned for next year!
