About Old Kenmare Graveyard

Old Kenmare Graveyard in Kenmare, Co. Kerry.

This was the site of an early monastic settlement founded by St Finian of Inisfallen who died in the late 7th Century. The Church of St Finian is in ruins and nearby there is a Famine Plot, where over 5,000 people were buried between 1846-1849 during the Great Famine.

There is a Holy Well approximately 40 metres along the shoreline of the river, access is via a stile near the church ruins.
