Killeshandra on the WWW
Father Gerard Alwill, from Killeshandra has created a very good website about his native parish of Killeshandra.

It has an excellent history section. This is a series of essays, which give a good overview of medieval and modern Killeshandra. It also has some individual emigrant stories.

It includes three essays of direct genealogical interest.

The old church in Killeshandra was used as a burial ground for members of all faiths and there are gravestone inscriptions going back to the 1600. The inscriptions are listed.
