Hi everyone!

I found the death record for my Great-Uncle but I cannot locate where he is buried. 

He was born in Banteer Parish, Kanturk Co Cork in 1899. He never married & stayed on the old 

Homestead. He diedm unfortunately of a stove explosion in the kitchen in 1967. The desth record

says Banteer. His name was  Cornelius O'Callaghan, he went by "Con"

Thank you for any help!  Sincerely,  MaryAnn O'Malley-Ellis

    I looked on FindaGrave and and although I saw many O'Callaghan transcriptions, I did not find one for a Con who died on Christmas day 1967.

    You may want to e-mail the parish   and see if they can check their records.Not sure of the current state of parish offices being open. Restrictions are slowly being lifted in Ireland.

    Thanks for finding this record.

    Mary Ann:

    You mentioned that your great-uncle never married but the epitaph on this record shows two children. The date of death appears to be correct.
