Rosses Point Cemetery

Research by Kevin Murray 2000


The Cemetery is located across from St. Columbas church in the Upper Rosses. It was opened in 1947 and the first burial was that of Thomas John Devaney on the 28th of February. The Cross in the centre of the cemetery was originally in the Church grounds. I found no inscriptions inside the Church, or on the exterior. The following appears on a plaque on the Cemetery wall to the right of the gates.
