Ballyea South Cemetery Questions

Post by s1nead » Sun Sep 14, 2014 8:56 pm

I am SO excited right now!
A fellow member of a genealogy group who lives in Ennistymon has located the crypt of my great great grandmother in the Ballyea South Cemetery.

I am including pictures she has taken of the crypt and its inscription.

Does anyone know anything about this cemetery?

I would like to contact someone to ask if anyone else is also buried within this crypt..

My great great grandfather who had erected the crypt died two years later so I wonder where he is, if not there.

The Clare Library has posted the transcriptions from this cemetery
http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... ptions.htm
But only from 1942 .....

The kind woman who took these pictures said that this is a very small cemetery and only TWO graves have inscriptions, Reily & Doherty.
So ~ are there TWO separate Ballyea South Cemeteries?

Is this cemetery connected with St John the Baptist?

Why do you think a prominent resident of Ennistymon (Woodpark House) be buried at Ballyea and not in Ennistymon?

Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Susan
The Ballyea cemetery transcriptions on the Clare Lib site refer to the Ballyea graveyard in Killone Parish. If you check the Townlands page at http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... nland1.htm you will observe there are several Ballyea's including Ballyea South near Ennistymon.
Afraid I'm not much help with your other questions.
Cheers

Hi Susan,
I just had a look at the 1842 map of county Clare, according to that the burial ground in Ballyea South was called Knocknakilla burial ground (If I am reading it right!)

Knocknakilla is a townland in Inagh in the Tithe Applotment Books
