      Alexander Richard Kirkpatrick was buried February 17th, 1891, by his own wish, in the little churchyard of Donacomper, in preference to the family vault at Mount Jerome, a magnificent Celtic Cross is placed over his grave which is beautifully kept. The churchyard contains the ruins of a church, the windows of which are twelfth century, the walls are supposed to be much older.

      Every church named "Domach" is believed to have been founded by St. Patrick himself., and he spent a night at each one. From "Domach" is derived "Donagh" or "Dona" Comper. Anglice "The House of the Lord at the confluence of the waters." The Shinkeen flows by the churchyarad and joins the Liffey a quarter of a mile further on.

      Mr. Kirkpatrick was beloved by all who knew him, rich and poor; the grief evinced by the latter at his funeral was very striking, and many and most touching were the tokens received by his family of their affection for him. Whilst on his other properties it was said by both Priests and others that they had never seen such deep widespread grief, extending even to children. He was carried to his-grave by his own tenants, several of them quite poor, who had come a long distance, and at no small cost, but they looked on him as a Father and a Friend.
