A graveyard surrounds the ruins of the Old Church of Ireland. There is no record of when this church was built, however, records of vicars of the parish began in 1619. The oldest grave recorded dates back to 1795. A map of the graves is at the entrance to the graveyard and full details of the transcriptions by Margaret Mortimer and Lil McCormack were published in Breifne (Journal of Cumann Seanchais Bhreifne, 2014).
