About a half a mile from me the remains of a very old church are still to be seen.

Clonbologue
About a half a mile from me the remains of a very old church are still to be seen. In fact the old name of Kilmoyler Parish was Clonbologue.
It is in this parish our school is.
There used to be people buried there long ago but is is about thirty five years since the last burial took place.
There is no boundary wall and there is only one Tomb stone now, there being no trace of the others because they are buried in the earth and grass and weeds grown over them.
There are small stones to mark the childrens' graves.
No one could read the date or name on the one Tomb stone that remains, it is so worn.
