Description: Located in a rural setting within a pasture field. There is no immediately adjacent farmhouse. The nearest church is in Timahoe. It is recorded in the Record of Monuments and Places as a children's burial ground. It is not marked on either the 1st edition OS 6" map or the 1897-1913 OS 25" map, but there is a circular "relickeen" marked on both in what appears to be roughly the same location. There are no upstanding remains on the site. There is no gate to provide access specifically to the burial ground. There are no paths and no access into the field from the road. The site is located in undulating countryside, but the ground surface is otherwise even..
 
Appraisal: No visible upstanding surface remains.
