Unbaptized babies are not buried in these grave-yards they are buried in a place called a "Killenaugh" There are a few of them in every parish and each little graveyard is marked with a stone.
There is a graveyard in the parish of the mines called Kill-na-mana. There is the ruins of a monastery in it and it is said that monks lived there. The old people that lived at that time never saw the monastery building they say it was all built in one night. It is said that there was a stone inside in it shaped like a holy water font. One time this font was moved to the Church in Cahermore to be used there and it was back in the ruins again next morning.
