Irish Cemetery - St. Alphonse de Kildare
« on: April 04, 2010, 09:43:50 AM »

Does anyone know about this cemetery?

Hi Fergus,

When visiting my sister in Rawdon last year we drove to Joliette.

We couldn't help notice a town called St. Alphonse de Kildare.

I believe it has a cemetary also that has a lot of Irish settlers.

Our regards, Mary & Ross Stenhouse

I wonder if the name isn't  Sainte-Ambroise-de-Kildaire that is located just outside of Joliette, Quebec

If it is in fact Sainte-Ambroise-de-Kildare there are two cemeteries according to the topographical map system of Canada. One appears to be Presbyterian and attached to the church on main street (rue Principale) and another right on highway 343
