I have records of my ancestors, family names TIERNEY and HICKS originating from Crannagh, Drum and Newtownflood, Roscommon and I intend to visit the area this summer.  As online records are difficult to find pre 1800s I will be searching for inscriptions in graveyards to see if I can find out any more about them.  I see there are three in that area that have been documented, namely Kilbegley, Moore South and Clonburren, but could anyone tell me where I may find others to check possibly in Drum or St Peter's Parish of Athlone?  They would need to be cemeteries that were in use up to 1840.

Many thanks

  • Tierney:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I found the site shown at the link but no Hicks or Tierney records but there is an older cemetery and I would check with the Drum Community Centre.

  • Hi The Parish of Moore and Clonfad is quite close to the Parish of Drum.  Contact Maureen Duffy a friend of ours who is a member of the Moore History Group and she may be able to help you.   I will attach her email to this.   Also the REcords in the Parish Church of St Peters and Paul are fantastic and kept very well.    I will revert tomorrow as it is late here now with more helpful searches for you.  


    Kind regards

    Mary thanks to you too, but I didn't see the email address for Maureen Duffy that you said you would attach, please could you attach for me I'd love to contact her?

    Best regards Tierney

  • Sorry this is Maureen's email address.   She is involved in the Moore History Group but is also originally from Drum herself.

    Good Luck


    All the best
