The remains of the old church.


In the small village of Donoughmore there is this little church in ruins with an ancient graveyard all around it. The oldest tomb I found in it was dated from 1676.
Another slab, dated 1995, says that during the Great Famine over 1,400 people died of famine and fever. Many of them remained unburied for two weeks though there were four men employed to dig graves and up to four carpenters hired to make coffins. Despite that, many dead were buried in ditches near their homes and without coffins. In the same year the cholera visited the village.
