Author's Collection.


This is from an article by the archaeologist R. A. S. MacAlister who did a graveyard survey when he wrote about the Athenry Dominican Priory in 1913. Some of you may find an ancestor here. I decided to chop down the article and just get straight to the buried ancestors of Athenry descendents.
