The old Lacken church ruins
alongside the graveyard
The old Lacken graveyard is situated a few hundred yards up the hill from the new cemetery, alongside the ruins of an old church. A plaque at the entrance shows a plan of the graveyard with the family names where they are known. However, most graves have no headstones, or they are too weathered to be legible
