  1. There are two graveyards in Oughterard, one at either end of the town. Unbaptised children are buried in the graveyard in Ceann Ramhar (Canrawer)which is at the western end of the town. In this graveyard there are buried also people who died in the old workhouse some years ago who had nobody to claim them.
