Floating Coffins


These floating coffins are in Kill graveyard, a mile or so west of Kilnaleck. They are a mother and daughter. The mother was married to an O’Reilly from Baltrasna, but the O’Reilly family wouldn’t allow her burial in the O’Reilly plot. There is a spring well under the vault which causes it to flood. For loads more about Kill graveyard, check out this project done by kids from Kilnaleck National School in 2005 including instructions for using it’s famous healing clay which it is said can cure pretty much anything.
