Baltinglass and Rathbran Churchyard Photographs

Here are some photographs of family gravesites in the Baltinglass and Rathbran Churchyards

Rathbran Churchyard

Bridget McLoughlin, as named in the stained glass window, her husband, and all their family are buried in Rathbran. The photos show the entrance from the road, a closer shot (arrows indicate the location of the graves), and the headstones. The large headstone is a McLoughlin headstone. The smaller one may be as well, but is has been cleaned and repaired and is now hard to read.
