Search Old St. Marys:

Old St. Mary's Church and graveyard is surely the jewel in the crown of Clonmel's historic sites.

The church dates back to the early 1200's, and it is likely that people were interred in the grounds from that time onwards. There is little to show of those early graves now, as the oldest headstone that is readable dates from 1625, that of a Jesuit, Nicholas Leynagh. There follows a gap until 1700, but from then on the dates on the headstones are regularly spaced.

The most recent interment was in 1958, in an existing grave, originally opened in 1855.
