Belderra, Cross Graveyard Headstones
This very old graveyard is situated on the coast near Cross Abbey graveyard and the main Cross cemetery. It commands spectacular views across Belderra beach to the east (bottom photo) and the Atlantic ocean to the north. The main Cross cemetery is visible about 500 yards away to the west.
The graveyard has been partially restored and is well maintained by the Kilmore Rural Social Scheme (Shanahee, Belmullet) supervised by Brķan MacSuibhne, who also look after many of the other burial grounds on the Belmullet peninsula.
Most of the burial plots have no markers or the headstones are too old and weathered to be read.
