Knockavilly Former Church of Ireland Site

Once again a big thank you to Barry who helped us to find the former site of the Knockavilly Church of Ireland and the old Knockavilly graveyard nearby. For those interested in its location, as you drive from Crossbarry to Bandon take a right turn at a crossroads about a mile outside Crossbarry and continue on this road until you see a sign pointing to the Knockavilly graveyard. The graveyard is a bit overgrown but there are a number of old headstones which are clear enough.

The old Church of Ireland site is nearby but the ruins are barely visible as the church was taken down. To find the site, continue past the graveyard and you will come to a left turn. Continue until you find an opening on your left.
