The romantic entrance to the Delgany burial ground with the ruins of the ancient church.


Delgany is a small village on the Wicklow mountains and is reputed to be one of the most enchanting villages of the county. In this village there's an old burial ground with the remains of a church from the 13th century. The remains are really scant and there's only one wall partially standing with a length of 7.50 metres. The church was aligned to east-southeast (100°) and was dedicated to St. Chuarog, of royal Welsh origins, who, according to the tradition, attended St. Kevin on his death bed in Glendalough in 618.
The graveyard has many ancient tombstones, the oldest that I found is from 1712, and a baptismal font near the entrance.
