Gravestone Inscriptions for Clare Abbey

Clare Library has hosted a transcription project of the gravestone inscriptions of Clare Abbey Cemetery, Clarecastle and these are available for viewing on the link underneath.


Title: Clare Abbey Graveyard Headstone Transcriptions
(Complete as of July 2008: all legible headstones included)
Dates: 1692 to 2002

These gravestone transcriptions of Clare Abbey Graveyard were recorded by Eric and Breda Shaw of the Clare Roots Society in July 2008. Many of the gravestones are old, dating from the late 1600s, and have weathered greatly from the time of the last recording, done in the early 1900s by the Association for the Preservation of the Memorials of the Dead.

A Summary Index of all recorded graves in the Parish of Clarecastle and Ballyea has been extracted from the publication The Parish Remembers published by Eric Shaw in 2011 anf id available here:
