Located on the top of Donore hill. The remains of the medieval church (ME020-011----) are located in a walled graveyard (dims c. 60m ENE-WSW; c. 35m NNW-SSE) which contains a 17th century tombstone (ME020-011002-) and a cross-head (ME020-011003-). There are also 18th century and 19th century memorials, which are recorded (Sadleir 1913-14). Near the gate of the graveyard is a watch-house, which would have formerly used to guard against the possible exhumation of the recently buried by body-snatchers.. Compiled by: Geraldine Stout
