Fenagh Graveyards Research Project

Carried out in Summer 2011

Fenagh Developement researched  all the graveyards in Fenagh identifing the graves number, layout on map,  inscriptions of headstones and a picture of the headstones. The Following is all the graveyards in Fenagh;

  • Old Fenagh Abbey Graveyard
  • New Fenagh Abbey Graveyard
  • Church of Ireland Graveyard
  • Foxfield Church Graves

A hardcopy of all this research is on display in Fenagh Visitor Centre.

Each graveyard is displayed on our website, broken down into each graveyard. It displays each graves number, inscription on the headstone and year of death.

Not all graves could be found or inscriptions read due to the ageing of the graves and headstones.

You can call into the Centre for more information on all graves or email for anymore help.

    I am looking for the grave of Patrick (Lawlor,Lawless,Layless??)
    I am tracing my husbands family tree,and have been told that Patrick was buried in the C of I graveyard in Fenagh.
    He was born in Scotland,but married a RC lady called Elizabeth Curran.
    She managed his shop in Newtown.Carlow.
    Apparently,Lizzie kept her Catholic faith,but asked to be buried with her husband in the C of I graveyard.
    I am sorry I don’t have any birth/death dates,but wondered if anyone could help me please?

    Your relative is probably buried in the Church of Ireland in Fenagh county Carlow, not county Leitrim.

    I looked for Patrick Curran in Fenagh graveyard lists on your web site but to no avail. His name and burial place was all I was given…can you point to a further search please for Fenagh graveyard? I never knew my potential father Patrick Curran
    My mother (Mohill, Co Leitrim) died London 2013 aged 91 yrs, regards, Patrick

    Patrick all we have in our records are what you see on that graveyard list..there are some older graves without inscriptions/plaques but we have no idea who is buried there. You could contact the Genealogy Centre in Ballinamore at .. also there are Currans living in Fenagh village who may be able to shed some light on your search
    Kind regards
