Description

Graveyard with various cut-stone markers, c.1350-pre-1963. Set back from road in grounds shared with Saint Mary's Hall.

Appraisal

A picturesque graveyard enhancing the group and setting values of the attendant Saint Mary's Hall. A variety of markers exhibiting high quality stone masonry with some artefacts attributed to Walter Kerin (fl. 1580) identify the artistic design significance of the site while a number dating to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries form an important element of the archaeological heritage of Kilkenny.
