In Clondegad graveyard, there is a gravestone to Daniel Kelly who died in 1858 aged 23. The stone was erected by his father, Timothy Kelly of Clarecastle. On the stone is a fine etching of a two-masted sailing ship and the words ‘The Master of the Mariner’.
Daniel Kelly was a sea captain in the navy service and died leaving a young wife, not named. The Kellys were coal merchants in Clarecastle and a brother of Daniel’s, Pat,  became Harbour Master there.  They also appeared to have connections to Clondegad. for the full story:
