    [From Mr. A. B. E. Hillas.]

'The church was built in 1700 at the expense of Dr. Brown, 
Bishop of Cork, for the accommodation of sailors frequenting 
the port. 'The sea coast is very dangerous, and many vessels 
have been lost in the neighbourhood. 'Probably some of the 
tombstones which have only a date and I.H.S. may mark the 
graves of nameless drowned men.'
