Hi,

The Cork Archives (www.corkarchives.ie) have digitised the records for Rathcooney cemetery,
and you can browse through it to see if your relations are buried there.

This is link - just click on Rathcooney

http://www.corkarchives.ie/collections/cemeteryrecords/

What surname are you looking for?  I have photographed a lot of headstones there but only in the older section.

Let me know and I will check to see if I have the one you are looking for.

Hiya, thank you for your information. The surnames that I am looking for are Tanham and/or Manning.
Thank you for your time and effort.
Kaleigh.

Hiya,  I was just wondering if you had any luck with the gravestones? and if you know of any graveyard known locally as "The Cutter"? Thanks again for your help.

As you can see from some photos I posted earlier in this post Rathcooney is a very large cemetery.

I checked for the surnames  Horan,   Manning and Tanham and unfortunately I don't have any
photos with these names.     The newer section is huge and I have not taken any photos in that
part.

Sorry I can't help you

Hi

I don't have a reply, I have a question.
My mother is Veronica Galwey, we believe her family are from the Galweys of Lota line. During My research I found out there is a Private Galwey tomb in this graveyard. Is there a list of Galwey family members who are buried there?

Hello,

I'm searching for the burial location of a Cornelius McSweeney, died 29 May 1885 on 4 Boyce's Street, Cork City. I've been told the old section of Rathcooney may be a possible burial location. I've already checked online records for St Finbar's & St Joseph's and he's not listed there and the online for Rathcooney only start from 1896.
