Description

KILMORE GRAVEYARD County Antrim O.5. Sheet 20. Grid Ref. 224234. This graveyard is in the townland of Kilmore on the west side of Glenariff, on a height immediately to the left of the main road as it runs down the glen to Waterfoot. This road actually cut through the original area of the graveyard which formerly occupied part of the adjoining field as well as an area on the opposite side of the road.' In 1832 a house, offices and garden existed on the site. It is believed that it was an ancient burial site dated far beyond the oldest legible headstone of 1795. There are now no traces of a church. However, both the Ordnance Survey Memoir of 1831 - 1832 and Canon 0 Laverty in the 1880's mention "St Patrick's Pot", a stone with a round hole six inches wide and nine deep, and a flat stone upon which St. Patrick is said to have celebrated Mass. These are not now visible but the large horizontal slab raised on smaller stones which is known as the Friar's Grave still remains and canbe seen in the field behind the graveyard. A local story tells of the removal of the stone by a farmer to create a pathway into a cow byre but the cows refused to walk over it. The farmer, fearful of anything happening to him, returned the slab to its original site. Burials ceased here before the Second World War and the remaining stones represent only a small portion of the graves even within the present reduced area. All visible stones, including those fallen on their faces were recorded in 1975 and listed here: http://www.irishgenealogy.net/forum/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?t=710
