38 of 365 pix – Cemetery near Ballymacarbry Grotto, Tipperary (Bennetschurch)


I’m trying to identify the name of this cemetery near Ballymacarbry. Ally and I passed it on the way to Ardmore at the weekend and stopped to take some photos. It’s quite close to the grotto which is on the opposite side of the road.

Anyone any ideas?

Edit: I stumbled across a reference on Excavations.ie to a ‘Teampull na mBeinéad’ in Ballymacarbry, (Bennetschurch).  The building in the photo below is an old schoolhouse. It would be nice to know when the schoolhouse was built and when it ceased to operate as a school. The website refers to the east wall of the church, which I think I saw on the day, but the site is extremely overgrown so it’s hard to know.
