Kinvara 1992

Connacht Tribune July 7th July, 1992 p6


The people of Kinvara have asked Councillor Toddie Byrne to raise with Galway County Council the condition of the old Church of Ireland graveyard at New Road, Kinvara. This graveyard has an unknown number of graves with only two headstones still erect over the graves of Joseph Staunton (died November 3, 1866, aged 66 years) and Eliza Jackson (died January 2, 1866, aged 60 years).
The public disquiet surrounds the manner in which walls and ground surface of the graveyard were interfered with.
They have asked Councillor Toddy Byrne to bring the matter to the attention of the County Engineer, Mr. P. Flood. This week Councillor Byrne, following his representations to Mr. Flood, expects the matter to be resolved.
