Notes: 

Some lead lettering missing. Canon Swanzy came to Kilshannig in c.1854 and his presence here should be noted as he left copius notes on the parish and the history of the area. In a clean up operatipon he discovered the tombstone of one of the Prior's of the Preceptory of Mourne Abbey which he had installed in the graveyard wall for safe keeping.
