Graveyards

Graveyard Sunday 2019:

Saturday 29th June 2019 6p.m. at St. Mary’s Church, Magherarney and 10.30a.m. at St. Tierney’s Church, Roslea.

St. Tierney’s Church Graveyard:

The people of the parish and grounds men maintain the graveyard to a high standard. It was surveyed by Irish Graveyard Surveyors in early Spring 2018 and each grave can be viewed on-line at www.irishgraveyards.ie. Click on graveyard search, then click on county, scroll to the specific graveyard and then enter the surname of the deceased only. It’s important to close the space in the surnames that have two elements such as Mc Aloon, Mc Mahon, Mc Cluskey (enter instead mcaloon, mcmahon, mccluskey). Where you type in the surname then all the deceased with the same surname will appear, click on the one for whom you are searching.

Ground in St. Tierney’s Church graveyard is growing scarce and therefore the arrangements are as follows:

  • Burial plots are provided on the occasion of death and not bought in advance.
  • Unmarked spaces will be used before opening the section behind the Parochial House.
  • Only single (3.5ft) and double plots (no more than 7ft wide) are available.
  • Plots are priced at £100 and the price is subject to change.
  • If you know that a deceased persona is buried in specific spot in unmarked ground, make it known to the Parish Priest or have it marked.
  • Families are encouraged to keep their family plot tidy and attend also to an adjacent plot where no one local is present to attend the grave.
