About the site.

This site currently has 3900+ photographs and 100+ “Memories” contributions of the people of Carlingford and the Cooley Penninsula, some back to the late 1800s. All of the people in them are named.

The site also has photographs of the headstones, plus script of all that can be deciphered in the 14 graveyards associated with the Cooley Penninsula.

You can search by Name, Place, Townland, Street, School, Communion, Confirmation, Harbour, Railway, Teams etc. If you have an association with a person somewhere abroad i.e. New York, Chicago, Liverpool, etc that will work as well.

If you have pictures that you wish to add please copy and send to me and don’t let those memories die. We would love to hear from you.

I hope you enjoy it.

Kind Regards
Kevin Woods
