IGP-Web is having intermittent problems at the moment, best to try again later...

They seem to have a series of about 28 headstone photos for this graveyard.

Ok thanks. ;)

I did visit Killukin yesterday, and it's not in very good condition I'm sorry to say.   There are plenty of unmarked graves to be seen, and I would guess fallen headstones that are 'lost' or damaged under the grass, or weathered away.
There are far more than 28 graves, and quite a few are unreadable without a bit of a clean.

I'll try again later, as you suggest.

Thanks again.

Steve. :)

As far as I can tell from the maps it's an old CofI graveyard and church ruin. Unfortunately it seems older records have been lost - no old burial records and baptisms and marriages only go as far back as 1880, and 1860 respectively.

Later records (1880+) seem to be listed under Ardclare parish

Oh well, that's a dead end then.   Possible burials were late 1830's, early 1840's.

I did see the ruined walls of the Church, and just assumed it was a small chapel for the mourners at time of burial.   But C of I is a positive sign at least, as they were of that denomination.

Thanks Shanew.

Yes IGP still intermittent, I photographed some of the stones for here a few weeks ago, 28 sounds about right. There are far more than 28 graves, and quite a few are unreadable without a bit of a clean and as they are not my property I can't touch them, etc.... Annaduff pics went up yesterday too!
