  • Hi

     

    I am responding to your message as I travelled with an US friend to help her research her husbands familin in Stranorlar, we would not have further information on this Village but this I might be able to help you this way.

    Kilteevogue Cemetery is high in the mountains in the Finn Valley, outside Stranorlar, Co Donegal.

     

    My friend photographed some of the Graves and there are both Scanlons and Gallaghers at rest there.

    Just enter the surname in the search, and you will be able to select a name and see a photograph of the Grave.

    You could also check out to see if you could find information here.
