Carlingford Old

When searching for a family name -search by surname,Each surname bears the Christian names of all in that family buried in that grave or associated with that family.The date of the first burial in the grave is at the end of the search line.The old Carlingford graveyard is situated overlooking the harbour and the lough and facing the Mourne mountains. There are references to it in the fourteenth centuryNone of the gravestones that are legible date back to the 17th century but many have dates which record those born as early as 1650 upwards.

I have deceiphered as many as I can and linked them to the actual tombstones taking care to photograph clues to location for those who seek out particular ones.

Kevin Woods

The original attempt to deceipher was by Paddy Power (Dec.) schoolteacher in Dundalk who lived at 18 Francis Street and a member of the County Louth archiological society and subsequently by Kitty Gallagher Sec to Dr.Grant of the North Commons and by Lucinda Carroll of Newry Street who rests in this cemetery.
