"The Graveyard Project" Athlone Off The Beaten Path Tip by SabrinaSummerville
Athlone Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 11 photos
I was lucky to be staying in the Radisson as, to the right of the carpark, I stumbled upon this unusual and impressive graveyard/Church restoration project.
In Ireland years ago there was a back-to-work programme aoimed at the long term unemployed and this was called AnCO. They also organised a lot of trade training. Anyway, it seems AnCO was responsible for the restoration of this old ruined Church and its graveyard. It's quite an amazing site to see as now the gravestones are used as exhibits and even wall facing around the derelict Church. The large, heavy gravestones have been cleaned up and left i situ.
