    [From Mr. James Coleman, M.R.S.A.I.]
'This churchyard lies a short distance from the seaside 
village of Ringaskiddy, on the south-west side of Cork 
Harbor.  Isolated as it is, it seems to be a favorite 
burial-place judging from the number of headstones, many of 
an older date than are usually found elsewhere.  One in 
fact, now partly illegible seems to date so far back to 
1522, though the lettering would indicate a much later 
period. 'Close by are the ruins of Castlewarren, a castle 
said to have been originally built by the Anglo-Norman 
Knight Miles de COGAN.
