GRAVEYARD TRANSCRIPTIONS - LEIXLIP, CONFEY GRAVEYARD

Leixlip - Confey - Gravestones
Compiled and checked
by

John Colgan and David Cormack, Leixlip.


Confey graveyard, just north of Leixlip town, contains the ruined, medieval parish
church of St Columba, Confey. The ruin is surrounded by a small graveyard
containing burial stones of the 18th and 19th centuries. This graveyard is located at
the northwesterly corner of a much larger rectangular plot of about half an acre
which the Celbridge Rural District Council (RDC) purchased from Lieut. Col.
Richard A. Hartley in July, 1910. In November 1914 Celbridge RDC "petitioned"
the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin, Dr. Joseph Ferguson, to take a portion
of this, five perches in area, and "to separate the same from all common and
profane uses" - as the deed of consecration put it - from the remainder "forever as
a place for the burial of Protestants alone". In the rectangular extension is a linear
section of about six grave rows deep, which contains the oldest 20th century graves.
This linear section is immediately within the western boundary wall of the
graveyard, and runs from the entrance on Confey Road northwards to the southern
boundary of graves within the curtilage of the medieval church ruin. Originally,
this linear section was divided into the aforementioned Protestant section to the
south; and a Roman Catholic one to the north. Recent burials are not segregated.
The remainder of Confey graveyard is modern and is not surveyed here; the latter is
the principal graveyard serving the wider Leixlip community at this time.
Since the establishment in the 1980s of a Roman Catholic parish commonly called
Confey, which is located in the townland of Newtown and includes few persons
from Confey townland, the addresses of some deceased persons from Newtown,
Leixlip are sometimes erroneously described as 'Confey.'
During the course of the field work the authors were informed that during the flu
pandemic of 1918/19 many local children died; they were quickly buried in mass graves
in the oldest part of the cemetery. There is no headstone to commemorate
them and we have not confirmed this assertion.
The field work for this survey was completed in May, 2000.

Curragh at the centre of internment campaign 50 years ago

It was a rare occasion to see issues of national significance featuring in the headlines of the local press in the 1950s with editors preferring to keep to the less contentious backwaters of local politics. However the Leinster Leader of 13 July 1957 was remarkable in carrying a front page story, and a strong editorial, on internments in the Curragh consequent on what became known as the IRA Border Campaign of 1957.

Since the end of the Civil War in 1923 militant nationalism had been at a low ebb.  The evolution of the democratic consciousness of the nation, particularly de Valera’s founding of Fianna Fail as a political alternative to the more militant approach of the then Sinn Fein organisation, meant that Civil War divisions (although still bitter) tended to be fought out on the floor of Leinster House rather than through ambushes on country roads.

However the existence of the Border and the creation of the Northern Ireland state remained a provocation to republicans and there were occasional outbursts such as the IRA bombing campaign in England and Northern Ireland during the second world war years. Sanctions imposed by the de Valera war-time government in the south helped suppress even these limited efforts by the IRA and it was not until the early 1950s that the organisation began to re-arm with the intention of mounting attacks from the Republic into Northern Ireland. Between 1951 and 1954 several raids on British military bases in the north helped the IRA build an arsenal. Towards the mid 1950s the leadership began to plan a campaign targeting RUC stations and customs posts along the border.

The most controversial episode was the raid in January 1957 on Brookeborough RUC station in which two IRA men, Fergal O’Hanlon and Sean South were killed. Their funerals and commemorations touched a nerve in the Republic of Ireland: there were huge attendances at the obsequies and a song with the line ‘Sean South from Garryowen’ became something of a folk hit.  The Republican movement felt that its strategy was endorsed when in a General Election in Spring 1957 it won four seats in the Dail.  However.  de Valera who regained power in that election, proved even more decisive in his treatment of the IRA than he had during the war years and in July 1957 he activated parts of the Offences Against the State Act allowing his government to deploy strong internment powers.

The fallout from this action reached Co. Kildare with the re-opening of the military prison on the Curragh as an internment camp for militant republicans.  The Leader of 13 July 1957 carried the headline ‘ Internees Again at Curragh Camp.’  Clearly drawing on good sources within the Curragh the report described the hurried adaptations being made to cater for the influx of internees: ‘ gangs of soldiers and civilian workers set about the task of strengthening the defences of the barracks, additional barbed wire barriers, lights, look-out posts, sentry boxes etc being provided.’ 

The impact on Kildare extended to more than the Curragh internment camp.  The Gardai arrested individuals in Rathangan, Sallins, Leixlip and Ballymore Eustace and had them interned. A statement from the Government said ‘ No one has been arrested because of membership of the Sinn  Fein organisation … In all cases the reason for arrest was that the individuals concerned were believed to be engaged in attempting to maintain military or armed forces in contravention of the Constitution.’

The Leader editorial took an unusually direct line on an issue of national importance: ‘ Like most Irish people we dislike the Border, but we do not believe that the remarriage of the Six Counties and the Twenty-Six can be brought about by shooting at either party. Nor will the divorce pronounced by Lloyd George (in 1921) be annulled by high explosives.’

There were further fatalities both of IRA men and RUC members as the campaign spluttered on but the interment crackdown drained the manpower and morale of the republicans and within three years the campaign petered out.

MAYNOOTH CYCLIST WINS 1957 GRAND PRIX

Leinster Leader 5 July 2007
 
Maynooth cyclist wins 1957 Grand Prix of Kildare

The recent spectacle of the FBD Milk Ras  starting in Naas prompts recollections of  the sport of cycling in County Kildare over the years. The Leinster Leader of 6 July 1957 reported on the excitement generated by the Grand Prix of Kildare held over 100 miles on a circuit taking in Maynooth-Celbridge-Leixlip-Maynooth.  After 10 miles a breakaway group comprising  Joe Clarke (the National Club), J Ward (Harp), and Eddie Kilduff (National), went ahead and led the field for a further 25 miles. They were eventually caught by more riders from the pack including Abbot (Clan Brogha), T Lawler (Harp), G Keogh (National), A Davis (An Uaimh), C Dunne (Harp), G Keogh (National), K Sloane (Athlone), Gene Mangan (National), and J Clarke (National). But the real drama was to come at the finish when in a six-rider sprint local man Bernie O’Brien of Maynooth representing the North Kildare club got aheadover the line by a bicycle length. It was his second win in an open cycling competition in 1957. And his efforts also gained first in the team prizes for the North Kildare Club with his teammates, J and E Pegley finishing in eight and tenth places respectively. Some idea of the athleticism involved can be gleaned from O’Brien’s winning time which at 4 hours 19 minutes and 25 seconds represented an average of  23 mph consistently over the 100 mile distance.
 
There was much to cheer about in Maynooth sporting circles that week because as well as Bernie O’Brien’s cycling triumph the Maynooth Gaelic team saw off neighbours Rathcoffey in an intermediate championship tie.  Rathcoffey put up a strong fight but as the Leader correspondent noted ‘ their finish was very weak … twice they missed open goals.’  However the report had a certain apologetic tone in regard to Rathcoffey’s performance remarking  ‘It was a pity that Rathcoffey could not field out at full strength as those who represented the club in this match were of fine physique.’  The match ended 9 points to 3 in favour of Maynooth. Best for Maynoth were ‘Toomey, M. Nolan, Dunne and Carey’ while Giblin, Molloy, Connor and Travers got honourable mention for Rathcoffey.
 
Elsewhere that week on the July 1957 sports page a team which might seem unusual to 2007 GAA watchers made an impact.  The Military College on the Curragh had a team in that year’s County Championship and held the formidable Sarsfields outfit to a draw. Indeed the Leader correspondent noted that Sarsfields were ‘ rather fortunate’ to get the drawn result as ‘ The College were in tip top form and their speed always troubled their slower-moving opponents.’  He added that it was ‘ the sturdy defence of Bunny Kavanagh, M Doyle and C Maher that saved Sarsfields from defeat.’  The Curragh officers looked to have the game sewn up in the final minutes but the Newbridge men had a stroke of luck ‘ As everyone was anticipating a Sarsfields defeat a short free was punched to the net to leave the scores level.’  For Sarsfields Bunny Kavanagh, C Maher, M Doyle and C Hanlon were mentioned while Brogan, O’Neill and Stapleton were prominent for the College.
 
There was no such excitement in another match reported when Moone thrashed St. Mary’s in a Grade A Junior Football Championship. In what must have approached a record winning margin the South Kildare side ran out winners by 7-9 to a paltry 3 points for St. Mary’s. In what was described as a well balanced side Lawlor, Moran, G Farrell and Kane were best for the winners while Moran, Spooner, Donohoe and Kavanagh showed some effort for St. Mary’s.  And in a reminder that the disciplinary problems being faced by the GAA in 2007 are not new to the game the correspondent for this match remarked ‘ When will players learn that unsporting tactics never pay? In this match we had a few unsporting antics.’!

KILDARE'S WETTEST SUMMERS

Kildare Voice 20 July 2007
 
Kildare’s wettest summers
 
by
 
EOGHAN CORRY
 
 

Praise the rain. Two of North Kildare’s most prominent landmarks can be said to have been erected to commemorate a wet summer.
The rain-filled summer of 1742 (and frozen winter which preceded it) caused a famine which provoked Lady Katherine Conolly to build the Wonderful Barn at Leixlip and Conolly’s folly in Ballygoran, near Maynooth.
Both had their profile raised by the building of the M4, which brings 60,000 motorists a day past them. Both served the same purpose, famine relief for a starving Kildare populace.
Widow Kitty, as she was known, shows in her letters to her sister in August 1741 that she had tired of the generosity, especially when the workers were looking for more. Tony Barnard gives a picture of her motivation and lifestyle in Kildare: History and Society.
Historians are still coming to terms with the scale of the crisis the two follies were built to alleviate.
We know very little about what must have been the major event in the lives of the vast majority of people who lived in our county at the time. We have only a sketchy picture of the weather patterns that led up to it.
What we have is due to Dublin Quaker physician, Dr John Rutty who compiled a considerable amount of data on Kildare and Dublin weather patterns just as the resettlement of Kildare after the Jacobite wars was beginning.
The seventeenth century had seen the culmination of the coldest weather cycle in a thousand years. It was quite common for the Liffey to freeze over in the 1690s, it continued to do so occasionally until the 1750s.
Robert Healy’s grisaille Skating at Castletown in 1768, shows Tom Conolly and his brother skating at Castletown is a reminder of frostier climes in our county.
From 1717 to 1722 the weather showed an overall improvement, but the vitally important springs and autumns of these years were classed as variable and resulted in poor harvests.
In an agrarian county the success or failure of harvests has immediate effects on all levels of social and economic activity. When the frost bit and the rain fell, Kildare starved.
However, 1723 was a consistently good year with an “excessively hot and dry” spring, and an “unusually hot and dry” summer and autumn followed by a “pretty open” winter
The harvests of 1726, 1727 and 1728 were poor. Then, in the 1730s, the annual temperature rose, there was a series of hot summers, warm autumns and, with the exception of 1730–31, a decade of exceptionally mild winters.
The winter of 1734 was the warmest for a hundred years, and 1732 and 1736 were probably the two best years of the century overall. Suddenly, in the autumn of 1738, the weather started to degenerate.
There followed 28 disastrous months in which three successive and widespread bad harvests brought the worst famine of the century.
It came at the height of the penal laws, a deliberate impoverishment of the estimated 92pc of the households which were Catholic.
Irish population figures are notoriously inaccurate, but it has been estimated that this famine claimed between 200,000 and 400,000 out of an estimated population of about 2,500,000.
Kildare’s population in 1732 was 49,968. How many died? How many were saved by Lady Conolly’s penny-a-day relief scheme? We never shall know.
The worst hit areas must have been the most remote, the Noble & Keenan map of Kildare published in 1752 shows large portions of the county were still virtually inaccessible, the Taylor map of 1783 shows islands in the bog only marginally less so.
Kildare was luckier when further wet summers provoked further xcalamities, at least in the north of the country.
The wet summer of 1756 caused a harvest failure, the collapse of banks, financial ruin in the towns, bread riots in the cities and an emergency parliamentary grant of £20,000 to the poor.
Kildare had a lifeline, 30,000 mean were required to dig the new Grand Canal scheme, taking 13 years to progress as far as Ballymakealy near Celbridge for its grand opening day.
In 1816 just as Newbridge town was coming into being with the building of the military barracks there, the harvest failed again causing the famine in 1817.
Galway based meteorological historian Stephen Galvin has recently linked the “year with no summer” with the impact of the Tambora eruption of 1815 in Indonesia.
It was the biggest eruption in recorded history, four times more powerful than Mount Krakatoa in 1883. This event at the other side of the world slashed the yields on Kildare farms and drove down prices at market day in Naas.
When another damp summer destroyed the potato crop in the 1840s it was the railway that was being built through north Kildare, another happy coincidence.
By now rainfall records were more exact and we are in a better position to work out what were our wettest summers. The year 1900 was the champion wet summer, rain putting paid to sporting fixtures through the season.
Spring saw more rainfall and characteristic floods until the Poulaphuca scheme in 1939. The Liffey flood of 1933 still stands out in folk memory in Kilcullen, Clane and Celbridge. Leixlip dam was completed in 1949.
What distinguishes this year is that summer rainfall is well ahead of winter. Baldonnel recorded 131.3mm in June, compared with an June average of 52.6 and a recent high of 107.5 in December (it was 19.7 in June 2006).
Similar figures in July and August would propel it past the summer of 1986, when Hurricane Charlie swept away bridges in the Wicklow mountains and rendered roads impassible all through the county.
But it is unlikely to beat the summer record of 1958, when people will remember the rain-sodden progress of the Kildare football championship won by Kilcock against Round Towers and the washed out race meetings in the summer, and indeed the unforgettable drenching of spectators when Dublin played Louth in the Leinster final.
What landmarks will we have from the wet summer of 2007? Maybe somebody should do a plaster cast of the car parks at mud-mired Oxegen perhaps, or the spectator tracks beside the tenth hole at the European Open.
The wettest summers on record:
Accumulated rainfall between June and August
1958    426.4 
1900    367.3 
1986    316.8 
1895    315.6 
1912    308.6 
1985    304.5

1798 - BATTLE OF OVIDSTOWN

Kildare Voice 22 June 2007
1798 Kildare’s Vinegar Hill.
 
by
 
Eoghan Corry
 
 
Without the mythologising that went on in the south east through the work of Patrick Kavanagh and PJ McCall, the Battle of Ovidstown on June 18 1798 might have a big a place in Irish history as the Battle of Vinegar Hill.
At first sight Ovidstown does not seem significant. There were bigger battles. The battle of Ross was the bloodiest of the entire rebellion. More people died on Gibbet Rath than at Ovidstown.
Kildare had its own sequence of about a dozen skirmishes and encounters and a march through the bogs by a rebel army that seemed to keep its shape for two months even when the odds were stacked against it.
Until Ovidstown on that midsummer evening, the rebels still had a chance of victory.
At first things went well for the rebels in Kildare. Two days after the first shots of the entire rebellion were fired at either Naas or Prosperous in the early hours of May 24th, they held a huge swathe of South Kildare and most of  the towns apart from Naas and Athy.
But over the next ten days they lost most of what they had gained and suffered sever casualties, including one of the greatest atrocities in the history of Irish warfare, the massacre of 350 prisoners who had surrendered at the Curragh.
When Prosperous, their last urban stronghold, was retaken and Kildare rebels were defeated at Kilcock by James Duff on June 2nd, all seemed lost for the rebels.
Not so. As Seamus Cullen says “there came a development that changed the entire course of the rebellion.”
William Aylmer, who had come out of hiding and taken command of the rebels camped in the bog at Timahoe- Hodgestown. He managed to regain momentum and take Maynooth.
The camp moved to Ovidstown, just six miles from Cloncurry, where Lord Edward FitzGerald’s grand plan had envisaged Kildare rebels were to assemble before taking Dublin.
The United Irishmen of Wicklow, Meath and Kildare would encircle Dublin, march on the capital and then appeal for French and American assistance (as well as the patriotism of Irish officer and sailors in the British navy) to resist the inevitable invasion.
Except it was not FitzGerald who was now in charge, it was William Aylmer of Painstown.
It was not to be. Aylmer’s rebel camp of Ovidstown was disrupted and their threat to the capital rendered void by a surprise attack on June 18-19. Edward Whiteman says there were 5,000-6,000 rebels there. Army commanders say there were 3,000.
The battle didn’t last long, snipers failed to stop the British/loyalist advance and steady bombardment from two pieces of artillery broke the ranks of the pikemen. They lost 200 men before they retreated to Timahoe.
The Battle of Vinegar Hill took place three days later. Both the rebel force (20,000) and the casualties (500) were greater than Ovidstown but both battles had the effect of finishing the rebel momentum.
But while Wexford’s rebellion was by then a purely local affair, Kildare’s rebellion was the last remnant of a grand plan to capture Dublin and secure political independence.
As Liam Chambers, historian of the Rebellion in Kildare, concluded “the rebellion in Kildare was United Irish in its origins, timing and leadership and remained focused on Dublin throughout.”
Ovidstown was where the agenda of the war turned back from national to local objectives. Aylmer believed the cause was doomed and started suing for peace.
Maybe it was, maybe not. The American cause looked doomed after the Battle of Long Island in 1776. America’s rebels recovered and carried on to victory. Ireland’s did not.
Kildare’s rebels held out for another month before their surrender on July 21st. There was even another massing at Timahoe on July 10th, when the arrival of Wicklow and Wexford insurgents brought rebel camp numbers back to 4,000. This was the largest encampment of insurgents in Kildare throughout the rebellion. But Aylmer had lost heart and they were not to take part in another engagement.
Unravelling the significance of Ovidstown is a difficult task. Historians have had great fun picking through the debris and propaganda in search of what really took place in 1798.
Even the bicentennial of the rebellion in 1998 was to become a battleground in its own right, where new fights were fought with old allegations.
The disadvantage is that historians have precious little material about what happened in 1798 from the rebel side.
Instead they have handwritten confessions of dozens of penitent rebels and exuberant army victors.
There is just one account of a Kildare rebel, Patrick O’Kelly’s “General History”, published after his return from exile in 1842. It may have been self-serving given the politics of the 1840s. He depicted the whole affair as heroic but ideologically unsound and ill-led, more a reaction to Yeoman atrocities than a strike for freedom.
After his surrender William Aylmer was allowed to go into exile and took a commission in the Austrian army. His “confession” to the authorities is less informative than it might be. A memoir written under less duress, should it exist, would be an interesting read.
But does one exist and is there more? Did Aylmer and other exiles commit further thoughts to paper? And we can be sure there are treasures in chests of drawers throughout Kildare: the equivalent of the Elmes papers of Wexford.
When local historian King Milne uncovered them in his family attic and unveiled them in a series of articles, they revealed a contributory factor in the rebellion no-one had thought of before: the collapse in the price of grain and its effect on the local farming community.
Those local letters with local gossip and sentiments can take on national significance.

Jacinta Crowley-Long
    
 Has a deserved reputation as one of Irelands foremost contemporary      canine and equestrian artist,  and is also acclaimed for her paintings of  rural  landscape, and period interiors. She graduated with a PhD from UCC, where she lectured for ten years before relocating to an eighteenth century rectory on the Wicklow/Carlow border.
 Her subject matter depicts the changing moods and drama of nature in the landscape. The empathy she clearly has for her subjects,  allied with her technical ability and knowledge of anatomy and acute observation, can be seen in her evocative paintings of domestic live stock and country artefacts– all drawn from the areas surrounding her home.
 She has been selected in recent years to exhibit at the prestigious International Exhibition of Equestrian Art at both Christies and  Mall Gallery,London.
 In 2005 she was invited by Claude-Hugues Pissaro (Grandson of Camille), to exhibit at the Salon de La Rochelle, where she was awarded a Gold Medal d’Honneur. Other exhibitions include the American Academy of Equine Art, Salon International de Samaur,  The  Irish National Stud, and the Palace House Gallery, Newmarket, England. Her paintings are featured in both corporate and private collections including the OPW, ETP International, De Beers SA and BP International.
