TOMBSTONE INSCRIPTIONS IN FOCHART GRAVEYARD, CO. LOUTH

TRANSCRIBED BY REVEREND DIARMUID MAC IOMHAIR


The following list shows inscriptions as they appear on October the 31st, 1967, including some of a temporary nature intended to mark a grave pending the erection of a permanent monument.
A few inscriptions are partly illegible through damage to the stones. Others are hard to decipher because of weathering or, in the case of certain eighteenth-century granite stones, of a granulation of the surface which seriously blurs the outline of the letters. In the present transcription, the indecipherable elements are indicated by a dash or dashes, without however intending these to be commensurate with the amount of text missing; and in the case of inscriptions difficult to read, the several lines are distinguished by downward strokes.
The number shown after each inscription is identical with the number painted on the stone itself. Numbering commences at the east end of the graveyard, where most of the older stones are to be found. Among these old stones are several instances of the small, stubby, " penal " type of cross, as well as of the incised cross with splayed ends that is usually reckoned to be medieval or even earlier.
This list does not claim to be anything more than an accurate transcription of surviving inscriptions. Other than that it affords no evidence of proprietorship or identification of particular graves.
Fochart Sub-committee of the County Louth Archaeological and Historical Society are deeply grateful to Mr. Cormac G. McGahon, of Messrs. John F. McGahon & Sons, Architects, Dundalk, who drew the plan of the graveyard for this publication.
