The very over grown unmarked cemetery is on private
land up behind Timolin, Co Kildare. We spotted a
smattering of headstones while exporing the back
roads. After climbing through a fence and dodging
masses of stinging nettles, this is what I found:

A celtic cross with the inscription:
Erected by Daniel FLOOD
Who died 20 April 1888 (? hard to read)
Aged 46 years
Margaret FLOOD

Right next to this grave was another:
