In the Parish of Ballyheigue there are three graveyards. The principal one is called "Ballyheigue" where the people of the Parish and some people outside the Parish are buried. The other graveyard is in Keelmacada which is confined to the Corridon family and children who die shortly after being born. The third burial place is in Glendahalan where there are no adults buried but infants who die immediately after birth.
