I am wondering if the burials at Templebreedy graveyard (St. Matthew's Church-The Ruin on the Hill" contain some catholic burials. I know it is the ruins are of a Church of Ireland community, but it dates back from before the Church of Ireland. Would Roman Catholic families still use the grave yard in the 1800's

  • Than you Kieran for your reply. I found a grave on that website which could be my GGGG grandfather, but since St Matthews/Templebreedy was a church of Ireland house of worship, and James McNamara was Catholic I am having my doubts. I guess it is possible that he converted, but have not be able to find evidence for that on the websites that are available. I will contact the people involved with the website and see if anyone knows the answer to my question.
