This small cemetery includes a name roll for famine victims of the locality. It's understood that up to 1,000 people who died during the famine are buried here. A very moving site to visit.

Visited after Rock Tour. Gives a good experience of the impact the famine had on rural ireland and how many families were destroyed. Does not debate famine history just gives view of the local horror.
