Claggan (St Fintany's) Graveyard Headstones
Claggan graveyard, the oldest in Ballycroy, is also known as St Fintany's graveyard.  The name Claggan is thought to be derived from the Gaelic for "skull" or "round rocky hill".

Claggan graveyard is well off the beaten path in a picturesque wooded setting on a steep hillside, overlooking an ocean inlet behind Achill Island and Innishbiggle.  Looking south across the inlet the mountains of Achill rise above Tonragee (bottom photo). 

The burial ground enclosing a "Chapel (in ruins)" and "St. Fintay's House" are marked on the 1840 ordnance survey map of Ireland. The ground was very steep and uneven and many of the graves had no legible headstones.
