Castlereagh (Castlerea) Old Roman Catholic Gravestone Photographs, Co. Roscommon

Once I got to Castlereagh then I had to find the old Roman Catholic graveyard didn’t I?

It’s on a hill and I have to say it was very difficult to walk around even though the grass had been recently cut.  When I went in I did intend to photograph as many stones as I could *but* the layout, the difficulty of walking around cancelled out that idea.

I photographed as many Flanagan stones as I could see and then a few that stood out.  There is one stone with some wonderful work and I personally have not seen one like this before over in Laois.

This is a big graveyard and the remains of the old Catholic Church stand in the middle of it.  Really just the tower and bits of the walls
