ABBEY OF BALLINDOON
Terence M'Donnogh Iyes within this grave,
That says enough for all that' Generous, brave,
Fasecious, Friendly, Witty, Just, and Good,
In the loud Name is fully understood,
For it includes what e'r wee Virtue call,
And is the Hieroglyphic of them all.
Pray ye for the soul of Ell'n'r O'ROURKE, his wife,
Who caused ye monument to be erected in ye year, 1737
Visitors to graveyards should not clean gravestones. The best time to view headstones is at low light, early or late in the day and during winter when growth of weeds is restricted. A full record of gravestone inscriptions can be viewed in the Sligo County Library. In addition the desired information can be purchased from the Sligo Heritage & Genealogical Centre (online).
