Hi Kevin - Glad you enjoyed my diary...I too have had 2 trips to the Old Sod and I feel as if I'll return one day again and will stay longer than 1/2 day. Will keep in mind the Pill Lodge.
I had the Kildare Genealogical & Heritage Society do a study for me and that's how I got the grave number. So...I am certain a plot of the cemetery must exist or how else would I have the grave number?
Thanks for the info on St. John's, although someone on the Boards gave me the address and told me it was still an active parish. Most of my info will come from St. Michael's, however. Unfortunately we got to the church too late in the day to get Elaine Foley, Parish Secretary, to print us off some info.
I hadn't been on the Message Boards for quite a while and your note prompted me to get back on the Athy Board and do more research.
Best to you.
Susan D'Arcy Rezsonya
