Loughmore Parish Index to Burials in Loughmore and Templeree Graveyards

I have a copy of  Loughmore Parish Index to Burials in Loughmore and Templeree Graveyards and can do look ups. The original is in the Thurles Library. The National Library in Dublin does not have a copy.

There is also a list of transcribed headstones at Loughmore Cemetery by Sue Grieves 2000-2001. Doesn’t include all the graves as in the Index but has lots of information from the headstones.

  1. Kathleen,
    My compliments on an excellent site and some body of work! Have been looking for a family grave in Loughmore some time which is what brought me to your site. From the local parish they say that they only have burial records from 1920 onwards for funerals conducted in Loughmore Church itself and before that no formal records were kept. If buried there but not directly from the church there was no record until 1960s’. Does the burial index you have cover more beyond this? I have exact details on two people buried in the family grave and rough details on three more but none were buried from the church itself. The period covered is 1918-1963 but the family grave pre-existed these burials.
    The transcription site is excellent but does not unfortunately include the grave I am looking for. Have made several visits to try to find it but without success so far. (I was there once when very young but cannot recall where it was and no surviving relatives can place its location. )

    1. What I have is a list of transcriptions of all the graves in Loughmore Cemetery and Templeree plus a map of the location of the graves. It was done in 1995 by a group of students on an employment program.
      There may of course be some errors but it is more comprehensive than the transcriptions of Sue Grieves on the net.

      Most of the burials are in the 1900s but there are quite a few in the 1800s.

      If you send me the names of the people you are looking for I will happily check for you.

  2. Hi Kathleen, I had not heard that had been done which would be a great help. I am looking for a Ryan grave which has as a minimum the following people – Johanna Ryan (nee Gleason), Nov 1932, Edward Ryan Nov 1963, Patrick Ryan 1918 and also I believe a Jeremiah Ryan 1918 and possibly another Patrick in 1965. Would be great if you could help me crack this

    1. Hi Eamon, Looked in the index and there are no similar Ryan names or dates in Loughmore or Templeree cemeteries. You could try the Rootsireland North Tipperary site and search gravestone inscriptions for your ancestors. Do you know where they lived? other suggestion is to go to ask about Ireland and see what newspapers you could check for death notices.

  3. Hi Kathleen great to make contact with you I am from Wexford and my great grand mother was a Fanning I have heard many times that Fanning came from Tipperary have you ever come across anything to say some of the Fannings moved to Wexford if so maybe you could let me know Thanks again and have a happy christmas

    1. So far I have not heard of any Fannings going from Co Tipperary To Co Wexford and there are no Fannings in the 1901 census for Wexford who were born in Co Tipperary but maybe that is too late. What was her name and the name of her husband and any dates and I will have a look for you on Rootsireland. regards Kathleen

  4. Thanks Kathleen her name was Ann Marie Fanning from Barnadown Gorey and she married Lce Darcy of Moneycross Gorey I do not have dates but I would think you are looiking at the 1850s approx

    Thanks for your help have you been to Ireland yet.

    1. I found a birth record for Annemarie Fanning 13 Nov 1863 address Rathpierce in Kilanerin Parish Wexford. Her parents were Patrick Fanning and Eliza Doyle. Godparents were Pat Boland and Marianne Kavanagh.
      Also a birth record for Laurence Darcy 16 Nov 1839 address: Shullen Kilanerin Parish Wexford. His parents were Laurence Darcy and Mary Sullivan.

      This comment was on an ancestry message board and relates to your family; Found it googling

      Classification: Query
      Surnames: fanning, Boland
      Ed , The Fannings you are looking for were evicted from their farm in Rathpierce, Ballyfad,in the 1880s,they moved to Barnadown near Gorey. My great-Grandmother was John’s sister Catherine.
      Catherine(1865) Married James Boland.
      Michael(1862) m. Mary Boland.
      Annmarie(1863) m. Laurence D Arcy.
      Patrick(1877) m. Sarah Kavanagh.
      Mary(1871) m.Bernard Dunne.
      John Joseph(1874).
      Elizabeth(1882) Died young.”

      Haven’t found any marriage record for Patrick Fanning and Eliza Doyle. You could check familysearch.org for this and also irishgenealogy.ie in case they married in Dublin.

      Your Darcys are also in the 1901 census misspelled M’Arcy living in Moneycross Upper and in the 1911 census, spelled D’Arcy, found for free in the National Archives site. There is a Elizabeth Fanning age 74 living in Barnadown in 1911 who may be Eliza Doyle who married Patrick Fanning. You may also like to check Griffith’s Valuations 1850s, found on Ask About Ireland, also free, to see if Patrick Fanning was there about that time, providing he had land.

      While googling Darcys and Gorey I came across an amazing site about the eviction of a Mrs Darcy from Coolgreany in 1887. http://www.thecricketbatthatdiedforireland.com, amazing photos and also a post about the Kavanaghs.

      Good luck and let me know if you find your Tipp connection.


      PS We visited Ireland for three weeks two years ago and plan to go back again within the next two years. Loved it.

  5. Hi I am looking for a grave for a Mathew McKenna (Kenna) who died 1928/29. He is supposed to be buried in Loughmore. I would be obliged if you could give me any information.

    1. Hi Bridget,
      I have looked in the index of burials for Loughmore and Templeree Graveyards all I could find were the following Kenna graves:
      2 July 1971 Edward Kenna address Templetouhy grave W.4.3
      James Kenna no date or address grave Y.12.7
      14 May 1921 John Kenna age 22 no address listed grave Y.12.7
      Maggie Kenna no date or address Y.12.7
      24 Dec 1975 Mary Kenna Templtuohy grave W.4.3
      14 June 1904 Norah Kenna age 41 no address listed grave Y.12.7
      1 Feb 1942 Norah Kenna age 7 grave Y.12.7
      26 March 1936 Patrick Kenna age 44 Y.12.7
      20 June 1927 William Kenna age 74 Y.12.7
      All these graves are in Templeree Graveyard in Loughmore-Castleiney Parish.
      You will be able to find Norah Kenna in the 1901 Census for Tipperary North but alas no Mathew.

  6. Hi Kathleen,
    I’d be grateful if you could look up in Loughmore Burial Records to see if there is a death recorded of James Bourke (b.1818) who would have died in the parish of Loughmore Castleiny between 1848 and 1852. James is my GGgrandfather. He was married to Mary Maher and they had five children up to 1848. He had a small farm (12 acres) in Cloone Townland where he had neighbours Anne Fanning and Catherine Fanning

    1. Hi Peter,
      I had a look at the Loughmore Cemetery Index for you but there is no James Bourke/Burk/Burke or his wife Mary listed as buried in this cemetery.
      There are also no graves in Loughmore or Templeree Cemetery for Anne or Catherine Fanning. 1848-1852 was during and just after the Great Famine, so a time of numerous deaths.
