At Darragh, the oldest headstone that we found was in
memory of John Moynihan who died on March 27th, 1778. However, according
to the book "God's Acre", which gives details on all the graveyards
in the parish, the oldest headstone in the graveyard is in memory to
Patrick Clifford who died on May 3rd 1741, aged 38.
