Clonown Gathering and Cemetery Sunday

The Clonown Gathering takes place on Sunday 11th August. There will be Mass in the cemetery at 3pm. There will be no 11am Mass in Clonown on that day. Afterwards, there will be a display of photographs and records relating to Clonown and neighbouring townlands in the community centre. The display includes school records, Tithe Allotment Records, Griffith’s Valuation etc. They have just completed a survey of the new graveyard (opened 1917) and have retrieved burial records relating to the old graveyard dating back to 1789, from the parish register and hope to display this information. There will also be light refreshments. A special welcome is extended to people with Clonown connections to attend. Further details on
