Ardmore in 1916

The Ardmore Tidy Towns Association decided that researching the residents of Ardmore in 1916 would be an appropriate way to commemorate the 1916 Centenary. Because of time constraints we focused on Main Street, Chapel Row, Ard a Mhinistir and the older end of College Road.

A fascinating graveyard in the medieval town of Kilmallock. The Peter Robinson families from south Limerick would have known this town and graveyard.

 

Holy Cross, Charleville

Charleville is a town on the border between counties Limerick & Cork. Holy Cross graveyard is situated in Co. Cork. Also known as Rathgoggan graveyard, from the townland (Rathgoggan South) in which it is situated. This was the medieval parish church and has an associated holy well.

 

Liscarroll

This was the medieval parish church for Liscarroll. 

 

Churchtown

Situated in Churchtown townland and village this is also known as Bruhenny graveyard. Locked any time we have visited we presume this was not the case in the early 1800s.

 

St. John's, Buttevant

St. John's was built in 1826, so any of the Peter Robinson families from this area would have probably seen the work in progress before they sailed to Ontario. Situated in Castlelands townland it is part of the old medieval settlement.
