Welcome to Forgotten Graveyards Ireland

The aim of this site is to recapture a little the life of some old unused/closed graveyards from around the country, the ones nobody visits any more, the ones off the beaten path…after all they’re part of our history and heritage.

Why am I doing this?

I have an amateur interest in genealogy, heritage, family history etc and a penchant for driving around off the beaten path with an ordnance survey map on the dashboard!

What can you expect?

Hopefully there’ll be some photos , plus whatever I can find out about any inscriptions or headstones that catch my eye, or any interesting local titbits I happen to come across….Expect a mixed bag.

Can you help me?

Yes, I’d love to hear from you if you know of any old closed/unused graveyards which you think are worth a visit. Leave a comment below or  drop me a message on my Twitter/Facebook pages.
