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).
