Headstone Inscriptions on Valentia Island

Kylemore Burial Grounds

Kylemore Cemetery GateKerry researcher Steven Sullivan recorded these names in the Catholic cemetery of Kylemore on Valentia Island during a visit in 2000. He notes it is not a complete list.

The cemetery is located just outside of Knightstown, between Glanleam and Farranreagh on the northeast side of Kilbeg Mountain.

View from cemetery Many thanks to Steven for the mammoth effort of recording all the data on the headstones and for photographing each. What a gift for all those researching Valentia Island.
