Hello Listees,
I realize these are not Cork specific, however I did not want to just
leave this info lying around when there may be someone who can
use it. So here it is. If there is a Mayo list, feel free to forward
this info to it.
The following is a transcription of a few grave stones located in a
small cemetery across the street from the parking lot of Croagh
Patrick in Murrisk, Co. Mayo. The cemetery is behind the
National Memorial to the Victims of the Great Famine (a
must see when in Mayo - very moving) which was dedicated
during the summer of 1997. I hope someone will find these
