Tombstones at Corcagh cemetery
Templeboy parish

contributor: Paul Burns


Corcagh cemetery across field from road


This is the site where St Patrick supposedly said mass at Aughris Head.
The well appeared during the mass. The pile of stones in the foreground is because
supplicants each throw one on the pile (I did too)
