I motored home yesterday from my weekend spent in County Cavan, having breakfasted on the full cooked helping of three sausages, two rashers of thick, lean bacon, an egg, baked beans, half a tomato, a kind of hash-brown patty, and toast.
En route I stopped at Kilmore "new" graveyard, where I paid a visit to the Farnham family graves.
These graves are located at the far end the the graveyard, on a slope above the road.
Intricate, fine metal railings surround the small plot. About four steps lead up to it.
The most prominent feature is a beautifully-sculpted angel, made, I think, of marble.
The graves are relatively simple. There are no coronets, crests or armorial bearings.
The last of the Farnhams to be buried here was the 12th Baron (1931-2001), whose widow Diana, Lady Farnham, DCVO, is a Lady-in-Waiting to Her Majesty The Queen.
The new See House, of 2013, is situated adjacent to the parish hall at Kilmore.
This is the official residence of the Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh.
