Lisnabreeny American Military Cemetery was once a temporary burial ground for US servicemen who died in Northern Ireland between 1943 and 1948.
148 servicemen, including eight whose identities remain unknown, were buried here. The dead included members of the US Army and Navy, but most were members of the Air Forces. They had died from natural causes, in road traffic accidents or during training, and about 40 men died in air accidents.
The cemetery closed in 1948, and the remains of those who were not repatriated to the US at their families' requests now lie in Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial, England.
