Visited June 2007. This is in the round white church at the top of the main street. I didn't find any cross type memorial in the town.

There are two plaques inside. I photo'd them (film not digital) and with luck one of admin team can scan and post it here.

If not possible, I can type them out.

Just to say this memorial is to the Parish of Kilarrow, not Kilcarrow

Cheers
