Templebreedy, Crosshaven, Co Cork - Graveyard.

Crosshaven is only a few kms. from Carrigaline. Templebreedy is situated above the town with a lovely view of Roche's Point and the entrance to Cork harbour. 

Headstones can be dated back to the 1700's.

If anyone is interested in a possible ancestor buried at the graveyard, please email me anytime.

This stone is known as 'The Darney Stone' from 1711. The name is more commonly known today as 'Dorney'.

This headstone reads - William Murphy died Nov. 1822 aged 57 years. Dan' Mahony died June 1846 aged 22 years. 

This headstone is easily read.

Carrigaline Co. Cork Graveyard

St. Mary's Church of Ireland, Carrigaline, Co. Cork is approximately 15kms south-east of Cork City.

Some headstones date back to the early 1700's. Many are legible, with others too weathered to give full information. I have two examples of the headstones below. I visit the area from time to time. Please email  if you require any further information.
