One thought on “Ballinacree Churches

  1. Searching for burial information on Michael Brown (1831 – 13 Nov 1889) and his wife Elizabeth (Bessie) Devin Brown (1844 – Dec 1910). They lived in the Ballinrink area. I know that a couple of granduncles, Peter and Henry, lived on a farm in Oldcastle, as my grandmother stayed with them in 1911.

    I thought it might be the St Brigid and St Fiach Ballinacree Graveyard but no markers are present.

    Appreciate any leads. Thank you, and God bless.
