This graveyard and ancient church
(which is believed to date back to
before 700AD) are located on the
remote northeastern tip of Kilcummin
Head, close to the shoreline.  Some of
the headstones are too weathered to
be legible, and many of graves have no
headstones at all.  A 1943 survey of
local antiquities reports "The grave of
St. Cummin, a few yards north of the
church and in the graveyard, is marked
by two tall flagstones one of which is
seven feet in height and the other
under six feet.  It is believed that other
saints or disciples of Cummin are also
buried in this grave.  Between these
stones is another small flat stone which carries the inscription of a cross.  Other stones carrying inscriptions and strange indents have been covered by the high grass and weeds."

This area is where General Humbert's troops landed in 1798 when they came to assist the Irish rebellion. Kilcummin is named after St. Cummin (~500AD). For further information on Kilcummin, click here.
