The small graveyard seen from the road, opposite Gulladoo Lough.


This small graveyard on the west shore of the Gulladoo Lough has only one grave slab worthy of mention dated 1781 with the written face looking to southeast (110°).
Actually we came here because we were looking for the St. Patrick's holy well, we took a wrong turn and ended up here. So while we were here we had a look at the place.
The graveyard of Errew is an ancient burial ground, but though it is old it is still in use. According to the legend St. Patrick blessed this place before leaving the area.
