    Great job on listing the details of the graveyard plots.
    Have visited but failed to locate the family grave. I can now return thanks to your efforts and find my great-grandparents final resting place.
    Many thanks.

    I have been told that my 2nd great grandparents Owen Tiernan(1814-1888) and Ellen Fitzpatrick (Abt. 1826-1906) of Drumnamore are buried “close to one of the outer walls” but the headstone apparently is long gone. Would you have any suggestions on how I might locate it? I am planning to visit in September this year!

    Hi Kathy – we have all graves listed at https://www.fenagh.com/graveyards/old-fenagh-abbey-graveyard/ and a map here https://www.fenagh.com/graveyards/old-fenagh-abbey-graveyard-map-and-grave-numbers/ – there are many graves like yours with no inscription or unmarked which makes it very difficult to pinpoint exact locations- all I can suggest is you take a walk around the graves and outer wall location when you come visit in September.

    Kind regards

    Hi Kathy , i have just looked at plots of Heerans numbers 116, 117, 118 of which i have family buried there, including my mother, yet my grannie Mary ellen Heeran who departed in december 1983 was buried in this plot, as i attended the buriel with my late mother yet she is not included in the names , can she be added ? and what reason would this be that it was never registered ?

    Hi, I’m looking for details of any LAWDER family who I believe are buried in the cemetery. Thank you in advance.

    Dear Juliana,

    I have emailed some photo of the headstones to your email – it may answer some of your queries. All we have is what we can read on the headstones – if you would like to delve further you could contact our local genealogy centre in Ballinamore http://www.leitrimroots.com – they have a searchable database of births deaths marriages etc.
    Hope this helps somewhat.
    Kind regards
    Jennie O’Hara
