'This graveyard lies within a short distance of the seaside 
village of Gyleen, and not far from Poer Head. A small 
portion of the old church remains, and near it is a 
Protestant church. It is curious that even the oldest of the 
headstones here are much more legible than those in the 
other graveyards in this part of County Cork' :
