Killeinagh Burial Ground, County Clare


Our friend Veronica Peterson asked us to find the village of Killeinagh, in which some of her ancestors, the Shannons, lived.  Killeinagh is a rural hamlet outside Ennistimon, near the famous Cliffs of Moher on the Clare coast.  We found it for her -- and for ourselves.  It is a delightful view into rural Ireland of a century ago.  The Killeinagh burial ground has an interesting history of its own, too.
