    RHUE CEMETERY (Tubbercurry)


    Erected by
    the Irish people and their exiled brothers
    of New York, Boston and Philadelphia,
    in memory of John STENSON
    who when striving in the cause of the land for the people,
    was murdered on this spot, by the orders of Dublin Castle, on 29th October, 1908".
    (There is a Monument in Riverstown)


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).
