Killeagh Catholic Church

Killeagh Catholic Church

The town of Killeagh in County Cork has a beautiful Catholic Church at one of main street. A neat garden surrounds the building and it’s an eye catching sight for anyone passing through the town. According to a stone embedded in the church wall, it was completed in 1792.

While researching this post I stumbled upon the community site above and then wondered if a similar site existed for Blarney, but no, sadly the main sites you’ll find associated with Blarney belong to local businesses and are commercial affairs. (And for my next project…)

Robert – true them, I did notice that chunk of text was an image, but at least the site isn’t an ugly commercial site like blarneyvillage.com or blarney.com

Really tempted to register a blarney related domain and put WordPress on there.

Visited church in 2000…my great great grandparents (Morrissey) were married there and left for the USA towards the end of the famine, I believe. My great grandmother, I did not know, but my mom did…she lived in New Haven CT USA…it was a pleasure to have Father hunt up some info for us in regards to marriage date and children born/died…have reason to believe that older ones remained in Ireland but have beenn unable to trace the line…John and Annie (Honora) came w/their parents to the US..I believe the original church or part of it was destroyed…so the date on the corner stone is probably for the original church
