Patrick Donovan
Death Date : 25-Dec-1853

Killacoosane
Glandore
Co. Cork
Ireland

As often happened the spelling varied at times as many people were not literate.  The official townland spelling is Killacoosane but on the headstone we see Kelecosane.  This is to the East of Glandore as seen on the map.

The inscription on the headstone reads:


SACRED
TO THE MEMORY OF
PATK DONOVAN
KELECOSANE. WHO
DEPARTED THIS LIFE
DEC 25TH 1853
AGED 27 YEARS. MAY
HIS SOUL REST IN
PEACE. AMEN


It is probable that this Patrick Donovan was the first of the clan to be buried here and hence the headstone.  Other family members were subsequently buried here but no inscriptions are to be found.  We know that Daniel Donovan of Ardkitt, Ballineen was buried here in 1936.  This Daniel's father was also Daniel Donovan of Carhoogarriff and could have been a brother of Patrick (or at least a cousin).
