Service of Remembrance at Killally Famine Graveyard

Killally Graveyard Association

The annual Killally Famine Graveyard Service of Remembrance was held on Sunday last with Fr Padraig Keenan officiating.

In 2017, the group undertook to clear the old cemetery walls of trees, briars, ivy and weeds. Their hard work has revealed the need to rebuild the existing walls.
