Hi – I am looking for any information about two sisters, Winifred (age 22) and Bridget (age 20) Welsh, from Upperchurch, Co Tipperary, Ireland (Native place and Country). Their parents are listed as John (deceased) and Mary Welsh (living) also shows from Upperchurch, from details listed on the ship’s passenger list. They arrived in Australia on 27 July 1855. Origin Location (on another list) shows “Parish of Tons, Mile Water, County Waterford, Ireland”. I would appreciate any help you can give me with these two women. Thank you. Regards Helen Kirwin (nee Malligan)
I am trying to find the grave site of my uncle who died as a teenager in Thurles around 1940, his name was either James, Jimmy, Jim Riley. All the information that I have is that his grave had a small Iron Cross. This was made by a local blacksmith, who had their forge beside the grave yard.
Any help with this would be very much appreciated

Looking for Carey/Carew buried in Upperchurch graveyard. The family lived in Shanballyedmond from about 1799 but originally came from Upperchurch. One member of the family Timothy Carew/Carey died in 1827 aged 26.
Any information would be fantastic. Is there a database from Upperchurch cemetery anywhere?
I too am looking for headstone/inscriptions relating to Jeremiah Carew (1879-1950), wife Margaret (nee Carey)(1894-1962), children, Michael (d 1992), Milo “Miley”(d 2009), Mary (d 2011)(never married) and maybe Anne Ryan (nee Carew). They lived at Coolnamona near Upperchurch.
Paula Reid, I am sure the above would be related to your families.
The Careys listed are not my branch.
Thank you for the link.
There are quite a few Careys in Upperchurch graveyard based on the obituaries I have read.
