The ruins of the small old church and the slab mounted on the wall. In the foreground is a cross base.


In the centre of the Castlekeeran old graveyard are the ruins of a small old church. On the outer face of the north wall of these ruins we found a nice grave slab.
It's been placed on a rough stone corbel. The slab measures 1.29 metres in height, 60 centimetres in width and only 7 centimetres in thickness and has two crosses in bas-relief on its surface. The upper cross is intact and pretty well defined, the second cross is missing more than a half of the carving because the slab is broken.
