Failte, Update in case anybody is looking for this cemetery:

New Co kildare burial gounds survey published online at http://kildare.co
(URL address is correct, no typos).

Done a keyword search and ended up with GLASSELY in the parish of Narraghmore (right area for me). There is a link to a detailed may JPEG with locations of other local burial grounds.

The irish map co-ordinates are: 275940(E), 198470(N).

The Lat/Long (suitable for cut & paste into google maps or google earth) are:
53° 1'54.61"N 6°52'7.40"W

It doesnt look like much with the satelite view but when you go street view ... WOW ! Brilliant pictures for such a rural area ... thank you Google !

Incidentally, it is listed as 'closed' but I suspect that is for new graves as one of my distant relatives (Bridget Ryan) passed away and was buried there probably in an existing family plot/grave in late 2011.

There doesnt seem to be an index available to the burials ... unless somebody knows different ?

Definitely on my itinerary next time home ...

Enjoy if it something that you have been looking for !
Slainte, David.
