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).
