KILBARRACK GRAVEYARD, SUTTON, CO. DUBLIN, IRELAND

Dublin City Council website has the following : "The ruins of
Kilbarrack Church stand on the north coast of Dublin and can
be viewed from the Howth Road. The church was built for the
assistance of shipwrecked sailors and is sometimes known as
'the Mariner's Church'. The church is noted in some records as
'the Chapel of Mone' and was formerly of St Mary's Abbey. For
a period, ships entering Dublin Bay paid duties to the
authorities in order to maintain the church."

The name Kilbarrack comes from the Irish "Cill Bharrog", the
Church of (Saint) Barrog.
