Saint Feichin Old Cemetery
Fore, County Westmeath, Ireland

Contributed by Anna Ryan, May 26, 2001 [annaryan001@hotmail.com]. Total records = 37.

This Cemetery is set high on a hill on the outskirts of Fore Village facing the ancient Irish Monastery founded by St, Fechin in the 7th century Situated between Lough Lene and Lough Bane the latter on the Co. Meath border.

Close at hand on the west side of the hill, was an ancient anchorite's cell. This was converted to a mausoleum in the 19th Century

The old ruined Church of Saint Fechin is situated on the base of a hill and was originally build in the 10th, Century.

This Graveyard is very overgrown and many of the headstones were impossible to read as they are so old and worn.

I walked and read this cemetery in the spring of 2001., which includes all existing headstones.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
