Search Ferrybank Catholic Churchyard:

The churchyard is on the East bank of the River Suir, overlooking Waterford Harbour in the Diocese of Ossory.
Ferrybank was formerly in County Kilkenny.Even today the people of Ferrybank refer to their much loved church as the "chapel of ease". This was the regular ecclesiastical title applied to auxiliary or subordinate churches within a parish. Such churches were constructed specifically to meet the pastoral and spiritual needs of people at a time when the only form of transport was by foot. Ferrybank remained the "chapel of ease" to Slieverue until it was constituted a parish in its own right in 1970. The church was erected by Sir Henry Page Turner Barron, Bart. to the honour and glory of God and in memory of his relations, deceased, 1906.
