I have begun to add Kilnoe Graveyard (Boduke, Clare) as it is the resting place of many family members, and it not currently on the site.
One headstone has me stumped as it does not state the surname of the family.
The Irish is fine, I understand what it says.
I feel this will give you, as it is giving me, a decent challenge to dig into the B/M/D records.
Thanks in advance!

If you use the the 'More Search Options' feature in Irishgenealogy, you can put in incomplete information such first name, year of death, age, and it pops up all the Patricks who died in 1964 aged 89....
Irishgeneaology: marriage Helena (Eileen) Purcell & Patrick Wiley Scariff Feb 1936 and marriage Patrick Wiley & Anne Moloney Scariff July 1908

No medals for ye, but thanks :)
I've noticed that alot of details of headstones such as ages, day/month/year, can be way off the actual death cert.
I suppose if the headstone wasn't put down at the time of death then there is room for forgetting the actual details.
