There is a very old graveyard in Oldkilcullen. It is situated around the tower. The head-stones are very old. They are mostly made of Iron, though there a stone ones. There are a few trees & shrubs in the 'yard & a few stone monuments. On the monuments are carvings. The graveyard is on a slope with tower.
The graveyard is not much used now and therefore it is neglected. The stones are falling and the inscription is faded.
