St Patricks Church in Kilrea

The Church of Ireland in Kilrea – St Patricks – is sometimes referred to as Kilrea Parish Church. It is a beautiful church, with a fascinating history. It has historically been linked to the other two local Church of Ireland churches, Tamlaght O’Crilly Upper and Tamlaght O’Crilly Lower.  My grandfather, Thompson Mulholland, was confirmed (and received his first communion) at Kilrea Parish Church in May 1911. I was confirmed at the church in 1980. In very recent times, the three churches share a minister.

The graveyard has gravestones that go back some three hundred years. In all liklihood, there will be some older unmarked graves.  If a family did not mark a grave, then over time, the plot of land appeared vacant. This was also true for old gravestones or markers that had worn away or fallen down. The earliest map of the graves in the churchyard was made in 1972. 

As well as using my own photographs of the headstones to transcribe the words, when in difficulty or doubt, I was very grateful to be able to get some inspiration from previous transcriptions by Lavonne Bradfield, Pauline O’Keeffe, Helen Evans and Al Luce. In time, I hope to publish a few more pages on specific old headstones (with their images) from this wonderful old graveyard.

His gravestone says that he was ‘A Man of Good Report’

Doctor James Lennox (1924) The death Dr. James Lennox, M.D., J.P., which occurred after an operation, in a Belfast nursing home on Wednesday morning, is sincerely regretted in the locality in which he practised, and amongst the medical profession in the North of Ireland generally. A native of the Kilrea district, the late Dr. Lennox was educated at Queen’s College, Belfast, qualifying in 1885. Be was attached to London Hospital for some time, subsequently returning to Kilrea, where he succeeded the late Dr. Clark as medical officer the Kilrea Dispensary District. In 1908, the Mercers’ Company sold their estate to the tenants, and Dr. Lennox purchased the Manor House, formerly the residence of the agents the company, and a very valuable and picturesque property. About two years later he got married to daughter of the late Rev. Thomas Madill, LL.D., Garvagh, and sincere sympathy is extended to his widow (Florence Lennox) and the four young children who survive him. Dr. Lennox was member the British and Irish Medical Associations, and was recognised as practitioner of more than average ability, whilst his urbanity of manner and the consideration which he displayed towards his patients won for him their regard and affection. He was for many years churchwarden of Kilrea Parish Church and he with his late father for many years were proprietors of a local foundry. Obituary, News letter, 25th January 1924.

Judge Richard McFadden (died 1931) Richard McFadden was a local justice of the peace. He was 73 years old, when he died on the 2nd March 1931 (his gravestone claims the 3rd), at his home, Lake View Cottage, Kilrea.

Note – Obituaries in the newspapers say 43 years, whilst his gravestone claims 44 years. He died at the Rectory in Kilrea. Sixsmith was a graduate of Trinity College in Dublin. He was ordained in 1890, and later appointed curate in Desertmartin. In 1894 he was appointed curate in St Patrick’s in Kilrea. He was a Canon of St Columbs Cathedral. By all accounts he was much loved in the Kilrea parish. His gravestone refers to Revelations 21.

John Killough MBE (died 1939) Not long after the Northern Ireland government was established in the early 1920s, John Killough was transferred to the Ministry of Labour, and after a promotion, worked as Superintendent Officer in charge of the Pensions Branch for Northern Ireland. He had previously worked as an inspector at the National Health Insurance Scheme. He was awarded an MBE in 1930. Killough, a mason, was 57 years old when he passed away on the 28th August 1939, at the house of his brother-in-law William J. Neely, of Church Street in Kilrea. His parents were Robert and Ruth Killough.

After some time as resident medical officer and surgeon at St Patrick Dun’s hospital on Grand Canal Street in Dublin. He subsequently secured an important job in India, and later went on to hold posts in Egypt, England, South Africa and Australia. He was an authority on tropical diseases, on which he wrote several learned works. Indeed his work in India on this topic was publically recognised. Medical and scientific journals published his work on bacteriology and the role played by mosquitoes as disease carriers. He also made contributions to literature, as well as Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, as well as other areas involving higher mathematics and general science. His wife, Mary Francis (Mina) Tomb (nee Healy) originally from Carrick-on-Suir in County Tipperary travelled wherever her husband went. She died a year before his death. Her husband maintained a keen interest in Irish affairs across his life. He was in his 65th year when he passed on 22nd February 1948, in Manley, Australia. He is interred there.

Doctor James Alexander Tomb MB, Ch.B. D.P.H. (died 1960) Originally from Kilrea, James Alexander made a career for himself in medicine. He died in Lancaster, in Lancashire, England, on 1st Aug 1960. His ashes are in England.
