Graveyards are very important places, both as a respectful resting place for our loved ones and as part of our valuable heritage.
A survey was carried out on graveyards in the Enfield Common Bond Area by members of Baconstown Heritage Group. The area comprises the parishes of Balyna, part of Carbury and part of Newtown in county Kildare and the parishes of Enfield/Rathmolyon, Longwood/Killyon, Coole/Summerhill and Clonard in county Meath. The survey involved photographing, mapping and transcribing the monuments as well as collecting any local knowledge relating to the graveyard and those buried in them.
