Coolcappa cemetery is located beside the church in Coolcappa
and was opened around the same time that the present church was built.

The graveyard in Kilbradran is situated at the roadside
and the church ruin is also on the site. The oldest headstone that we
found in the graveyard at Kilbradran was in memory of Thomas Madigan who
died on the 15th of September 1788, at the age of 24. We also came across
a headstone that was dedicated to Fr Patrick Murray who was parish priest
in Ardagh and died on October 11th 1811. The graveyard is well maintained
and mass is said here on the first Sunday in July.

Part of the grounds of the old Kilcolman church is now used
as a graveyard and some of the headstones date back to before the nineteenth
century. The oldest headstone that we came across was from February 1st
1767 in memory of Jeremiah Shea. Mass is held in the graveyard each November
for the souls of the dead. The graveyard in Kilcolman was recently extended
with the addition of a new section.

There is also a graveyard in Clonagh. This graveyard is
situated in the grounds of the church ruin in Clonagh. The graveyard was
cleaned up last summer. The oldest headstone that we came across was in
memory of Daniel Culhane who died on May 20th 1785 aged 70.
Westropp also mentions a burial ground or a Kyle in Gortadroma. However,
no trace remains of this graveyard.
