About Quaker graveyard and Lecky family graveyard

Quaker graveyard and Lecky family graveyard in Ballykealey, Co. Carlow.

This Quaker graveyard is strongly associated with the Lecky family for whom nearby Ballykealey House was built in 1830. Twenty-six members of the family are known to be buried in this Quaker plot.

By the late 19th century most of the family had become members of the Church of Ireland and a new family graveyard was consecrated in 1880. The graveyard remained in use until 1950. It includes a memorial to Captain John Lecky, killed in Mesopotamia in 1915 and the grave of Molly Grace (nee Lecky) a section officer in the WAAF who was killed in 1942 while flying her plane during the Second World War.
