|Donated Material: Graveyard Inscriptions|
|Kilchreest, Clondagad and Killea Graveyards, Ballynacally|
In 2008-2009, members of Ballynacally I.C.A. (Irish Countrywomens’ Association) in association with the Heritage Council of Ireland, decided that they would take on the project of transcribing and publishing details of the gravestones and burial plots in 3 graveyards in the parish - those of Kilchreest, Clondegad and Killea. Maps and photographs where possible would also be included.
Four volunteers from the I.C.A. undertook this project. Kilchreest was divided into 5 sections and the old church was the sixth section. Clondegad was divided into two sections - left of the main entrance and right of the main entrance. In Killea the work began at the entrance gate and the ladies worked from left to right.
Mr. P.J. Carmody of Clare County Council assisted with the map making and aerial photographs.As part of Heritage Week 2010 it is proposed to conduct a guided walk for the public through the cemeteries. Interesting burial plots will be pointed out and knowledge shared with all present.
For financial assistance towards the costs associated with this project we gratefully acknowledge the contribution of The Heritage Council who gave support through its 2009 grant scheme.
In April 2014 burials which had taken place since the original survey were added to this website.
