Rathcormac Co. Cork CofI cemetery

The cemetery is situated in the centre of the village. There is much history attached to Rathcormac. 
There is a plaque on the entrance to the cemetery remembering John Dahill who was hung at Curraglass 1798. John Dahill being a United Irishman. I have attached a Dahill headstone from the 1700's ....a descendant of the family (from the USA) has been added.

Another historical event was the 'Rathcormac Massacre'. Linkhere

Cloyne Co.Cork

Cloyne is  south of the town of Midleton and approximately 30kms from Cork City. The parish is steeped in history and is well worth a visit. The Round Tower is well over a 1,000 years old and the Cathedral is directly opposite.
One of the headstones I have added is that of the Moreen/Moureen family. Looking at the plaque, there was a Richard Moreen executed in 1798, probably a family member.
