Kilquane Graveyard

The graveyard at Kilquane is situated around the site of the church ruin in the parish of St. Patrick’s in Parteen. It is located in the back of the Shannon Banks Estate in Corbally and is on the Clare bank of the river Shannon. The site is about 10m from the bank of the River Shannon, on a level, flat plain below gentle rising ground to the north. It is lies on a sandy, low, gentle ridge running parallel to the river and is liable to annual flooding. Its exterior walls can be seen from the river.

This graveyard contains a large number of tombs and vaults. There are large tombs to the Holmes and Fitzgerald families. The graveyard is kept in good condition and the oldest headstone that we came across was to the memory of Joane Mynahan who died in April 1708.

In this graveyard is a memorial stone to the MacAdam who legend has it showed the army of King William where they could cross the River Shannon to attack the city of Limerick from the north in 1691. A chain was placed across the river to enable the soldiers to cross the river. The chain was tide to a rock on the north side, which became known as Carraig a tSlabhra, the Rock of the Chain.

Where possible an obituary from the Limerick Local Studies Limerick Chronicle Obituaries Collection has been added.
