Appraisal

A picturesque graveyard forming an appealing landmark in the centre of Ringville. The various markers to the burial plots enhance the artistic design distinction of the site, representing high quality craftsmanship, while some models represent good examples of early-surviving iron work. The remains of a church on site are of interest as evidence of the once-prosperous Church of Ireland community in the locality.
