11. Our O'Neill Burials in Ireland

   Until recently we did not have any hard data from Ireland on our O'Neill family. We had family tradition and the family Bible, but that was all.

   Now we do have the burial sites of John and Esther O'Neill in Carlow, as both are buried in the Fenaugh Cemetery. These entries are from pages 20-21 of the Journal of the Association for the Preservation of the Memorials of the Dead, ca 1894.

This is the Fenagh Church and it looks like the cemetery is just to the right. Fenagh is a village in Idrone East, Carlow, close to Newtown, Garryhill, Leighlinbridge, and Old Leighlin, which adds credence to our Bible entry and family stories.

(Thanks to Neill James of Leeds, England, for sending this along.)
