MAPS AND PHOTOGRAPHS
PHOTOGRAPHS FROM FÁS SURVEY - ST JAMES'S DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION
In 1988 FÁS cleared the site of dense weeds and brambles and conducted a grave site survey, creating an accurate map of the graveyard showing the exact location of all graves and tombstones. They discovered the earliest recorded headstone from 1627 and found two stones which are likely to have been part of the medieval church. In all, the survey mapped 705 tombstones and recorded around 500 headstone transcriptions. Below are photographs taken during the time of the research and graveyard survey.
