GARRISTOWN
From A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, 1837

GARRISTOWN, a parish, in the barony of BALROTHERY, county of DUBLIN, and province of LEINSTER, 4 miles (N. W.) from Ashbourne; containing 2081 inhabitants, of which number, 741 are in the village of Garristown, and 218 in that of Baldwinstown. It is a constabulary police station, and has a dispensary. There is a windmill on a hill near the village, from which is an extensive prospect, commanding a view over fourteen counties. Good building stone and turf are obtained in the parish; and fairs are held on May 5th, Aug. 15th, and Nov. 1st. The living is a vicarage, in the diocese of Dublin, and in the gift of Lord Trimleston, in whom the rectory is impropriate: the vicarial tithes were valued at £50, and there is a glebe of 25 acres. The church is a plain building: the glebe-house, which was built in 1791, is in ruins. In the R. C. divisions the parish is united to Ballymadun; there is a chapel in each parish: that of Garristown was erected in 1828, and galleries were added to the chapel of Ballymadun in 1833. There is a national school, in which about 100 boys are instructed, and there are also two private schools.

Cemeteries

Internment.net Garristown Cemetery: http://www.interment.net/data/ireland/dublin/garristown/index.htm
To reach this cemetery take the N2 Road to May's Cross and turn right on to the R 122 and then the R130 to Garristown. This is the cemetery for the community of Garristown in County Dublin. It is still in use and well maintained by the Fingal County Council. It originally was started and maintained by the Catholic Church in the area and dates back to post reformation time. In the 1950s the care of the graveyard was transferred to the then Dublin County Council, since changed to Fingal County Council. I surveyed this cemetery, using my digital camera, on Jun 23, 2005. This is a complete transcription of all existing and legible headstones.  - Frank Carroll
