File contributed by: Anna Ryan 


Travel straight through the village of Kilcullen and after a
mile and a half turn left at the 2nd green bollard. The
graveyard is about two miles on this road on the left
hand side. The round tower in the graveyard were used
as refuges and as a storehouse during the Norse raids in
the 9th and 10th century A.D. ad served also as watch
towers and Belfrays during the 1798 insurrection in the
course of a successful Irish stand at this point the upper
portion of the tower suffered much damage. This is not
a complete list of burials. Most of the old headstones
are too worn to read. These graves are not listed in any
particular order.
