Old Graveyard at Drumcliff - major transcription project

Old Drumcliff GraveyardThe results of a major undertaking by the Clare Roots Society are now available on Clare County Library’s website. Transcriptions and photographs of all headstones in the Old Graveyard at Drumcliff, for centuries the main burial place for Ennis and its surrounds, were donated by the society and are now online. Family names can be searched either using the alphabetical lists or by using the search box in Foto . A map of the graveyard is also provided to help in locating graves on the ground. This addition to the website should be of great use to genealogists and great praise is due to the Clare Roots Society and particularly its indefatigable secretary Fíona De Buitléir.
