© Front of Bulgaden Church,
including a new section of the graveyard
The burial ground in the churchyard has recently been expanded to include
the land at the front of the church. Throughout the parish there are a
number of graveyards.

The graveyard in Kilbreedy East is well maintained by a
local committee and mass is said there once a year. The graveyard is in
the same location as the church ruin in Kilbreedy. There is a tomb to
John Clifford C.C. who died on December 31st 1846 at the age of 26. The
oldest headstone that we came across was from 1748 and is in memory of
James McGuirc who died on August 7th in that year aged 72 years.

The graveyard in Emlygrennan is also situated in the grounds
of a church ruin, near St. Molua's well. The oldest headstone that we
discovered was in memory of John O'Grady who was from Martinstown and
died on April 26th 1838. Some of the headstones were indecipherable due

Athnassey (or Athanacy as it was spelt at the entrance)
graveyard is near the border that divides the dioceses of Limerick and
Cashel & Emly. Trees and a wall enclose the graveyard. The oldest
headstone that we found dated from June 1st 1790 and was erected to the
memory of Patrick Casey by his wife Catherine.
