Translated by "Caromom" (Caroline);
Cannot quite read the date numbers from the picture, so they may
be incorrect below, but the gist of the translation is:
Maire Nic a Bhaird bean Seain Ui lionainn
a fuair bar an
3 D Fomhair 1934
agus ar a ceile
Sean O lionainn,
a fuair bas 26 Nollaig 1959
In aimn an
Athair agus an Mhic agus an spioraid Naoimh Amen
Mary Ward wife of John Lennon (?)
died 3rd September * 1934
and her husband John Lennon, Cnomaigh Beag**
25 December 1959.
In the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, Amen
Note: My son who went to Irish
school, said that * Fomhair is harvest/Autumn, Mean Fomhair is
September and Deireadh Fomhair is October and literally mean
middle of Autumn/Harvest and end of Autumn/Harvest but he would
be 90% sure that in this case, without the Mean or the Deireadh
it would be September.
Cnomaigh Beag is most likely a local place name, could not find
a direct translation for it, but perhaps if you know the
graveyard you can tie it back to an area?
Our thanks to Caroline for the above translation and notes.
