Notes:

 

Hayley visited the graveyard in Apr 2008, where she photographed those which she thought pertinent to her research

She notes that Donoughmore Presbyterian Church was destroyed by fire on 12 Jun 1975 and a new church was opened in 1977

All the headstones were moved...so they are not in their original locations

See the Newspaper Article about the fire
