Long view of front of Corley monument. Biggest in the cemetery!!

Here is the monument to my great great grandfather Patrick Corley, who is buried in the older part of Kilconduff Cemetery in Swinford, Ireland.  It is a large plot and there are only two headstones, one to Patrick, and one to his daughter Annie.  There are probably a lot more relatives under all that masonry, but there are no records to say one way or the other.
