KILL ABBEY GRAVEYARD, DUBLIN, IRELAND
photos taken 2018

This small ruined church and graveyard is near Dean's Grange,
about 12 km south-east of Dublin city.
The following is not a complete record, but a selection of the
headstones on site. I hope to return in summer 2020 to
photograph more stones (and better photos of some headstones).
As you enter the graveyard, the photos start on the left-hand
side of the church and continue keeping the church on the
right.

The church is thought to have been dedicated to St. Fintan
and is one of the oldest in the south Dublin area.

plinths where the actual headstones have disappeared. Many of
the old headstones are broken.
