Old Clare Hill Cemetery and Church of Ireland

This graveyard dates from medieval times with over 170 inscribed headstones and a large number of un-inscribed headstones in this cemetery. 122 victims of the cholera epidemic that broke out in Clarecastle in 1832 are buried in the lower part of the cemetery which also contained a medieval holy water font discovered in the 1940s.
