'The Castle Harrison vault was built by HENRY HARRISON, of 
Castle Harrison, who was known as the " Commissioner." He 
was Commissioner of Customs in Ireland about 1710. On the 
top of this vault is an altar-tomb to some member of the 
Harrison family, but I cannot read the inscription. 

'I understand that this churchyard is the private property 
of Colonel Harrison, of Castle Harrison. It is only a short 
distance from Castle Harrison, and lies about 3 1/2 miles 
(south-west by west) from Charleville.'
