Newbridge Local History Group’s contribution to Heritage Week will be a guided talk in Connellmore Graveyard at Baroda.
Paul Cooke will take us on a tour of the significant interments of this old cemetery where some of key families in Newbridge’s development are buried.
Connellmore Graveyard has been a burial ground for both Catholics and Protestants in Newbridge since 1736. The last interment took place in 1946.
Many of the great families of Newbridge are buried in this quaint graveyard. From Eyre Powell and Goff to Beasley and Young, there are also military graves that predate the Curragh Military Graveyard which opened in 1866.
All are welcome to attend.
