Ballylucra Cemetery

Ballylucra Graveyard near Brooklodge, Glanmire.

Some of the graves are relatively recent (within the last decade) but most seem a lot older. Also ruins of a church tower. According to Archaeological Inventory of County Cork. Volume 2: East and South Cork:

“In graveyard (CO064-054001-). The site of the ancient parish church (CO064-054002-), in ruins by 1615 (Brady 1863, vol. 1, 26). In 1700 the church described as ‘built with stone and clay; half the walls are down; the churchyard is fenct with a ditch’. C of I church of Riverstown built here in 1829 (Lewis 1837, vol. 1); according to local information demolished in 1923; stones used to rebuilt nearby Butlerstown House. Short section of W wall of church survives with tower attached; hexagonal with spire, on rectangular base (2.9m N-S; 3.8m E-W).”
