Hi Barbara, I am glad the Lawlors are Catholics. If you go to, type in Tyneclash cemetery, County Wicklow. Anna Ryan has done a survey of a few of the cemtery stones there. I have been in e mail communication with her. She did not know if this was a Catholic cemetery or not. You will see Lawlors of Hacketown, and Kiltegan, County Wicklow. You will also find, Harmons and Sheridans. The list Anna Ryan made of this cemetery is just a fraction of the people buried there.She has a picture of it on line that I have stared at for some time. I had also done the Harmon Family, Kiletgan, Wicklow Ireland on www. and that is how I found the story of Father Byrne who died at the age of 96 in about 1754 in Kiltegan, and that mass used to be said in the Harmon family home during penal times by him. This is the first and only cemetery that I have found on line that has both Sheridans and Harmons. They list the two Harmons as being the brother and sister in law of Patrick Lawlor of Hacketown, who died in 1828. When I saw this, I began to look for Patrick Lawlor of County Wicklow and found you. It is all a new experience for me, but I just sense it--that you are of my family. The Sheridans, as a last name, are always associated with Counties Cavan and Longford, so to believe that my great great grandfather was born in County Wicklow, has been a problem. My Aunt Bessie(Elizabeth Sheridan) who died in 1979 had told me that she thought Patrick Sheridan was born in County Wicklow. Everything else she told me turned out to be true, and I believe this will also. The Lawlors are from Hacketown, as the cemetery records prove. The Harmons and Sheridans are also from there and they are related. I bet these are both of our families. Look up these web sites and tell me what you think! I have no idea how big Hacketown or Kiltegan is, but I do not think it is very large. Gabe
