There are only a few burying grounds around here. The principal one is Corcomroe Abbey. There is an old ruin in it. Outside there are stone crosses over the graves. People are buried inside too but it is all full now.
There is another old ruin about one mile away from Corcomroe. There is no one buried there yet. There is a burying ground in Kilwelran also. It is by the side of our house. As late as sixteen years there were two children buried in it. It is called the Cilleen.
