Balylarkin Church
Co. Kilkenny,
Ireland.

These photographs were taken May 2014. There is no graveyard around this church.
Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us “BALLYLARKIN, a parish, in the barony of CRANAGH, county of KILKENNY, and province of LEINSTER, 1 ¾ mile (S. W.) from Freshford; containing 243 inhabitants. ”
and that “In the R. C. divisions the parish forms part of the union or district of Freshford.”

However, these are the remains of Ballylarkin Church (aka Ballylarkin Abbey). There are Castle remnants across the road.

I have left one photo with Janet in it to give you an idea of the height of these remnants.
