Fahy Graveyard Headstones
This ancient graveyard is still in current use and encompasses the ruins of an old church which has several tomb-stones laid in its floor (bottom photo). The church has been partially restored and overlooks the Atlantic ocean and Blacksod Bay to the west. As is usual with such old graveyards, most of the graves have no legible headstones.
About 300 yards north of the graveyard stand the ruins of Fahy castle (top photo) which is associated with the legendary Irish Sea Queen, Grace O’Malley.
