  1. On the land of Mr John Doran Moneyhore, Enniscorthy, there is an old grave, yard.
    Owing to its having been ploughed up there is but a small portion of it existing.
    No one seems to know anything about it, still the tomb stones are there to be seen, but none of the dates or names of the persons can be made out.
    About two miles from the grave, yard there was supposed to be an old Church. The houses and Churches them times were made of mud and that is why none of the old ruins of the Churches can be seen at the present time.
    The roots of the trees that grew round the old grave,yard are there to the present day.
    It is said that the old people cut down the trees for fire wood and they would not burn.
    The tomb stones are laid flat on the ground in the old grave,yard
