Donaghmore Cemetery is a country graveyard by the sea in north west County Wexford, Ireland.
The country graveyard may make an ideal filming location for religious scenes set in a windswept and lonely cemetery. The location is quite rural and rugged. The graves are on an uneven and grass covered hill by the cliff’s edge. The graves are lichen spotted, the boundary wall is partly whitewashed and weathered, and hedges around the site are overgrown and wild.
The cemetery has extra visual interest due to a ruined stone church that occupies the entrance to the site. The interior of this roofless church can be accessed.
The graveyard was used as early as 1707. The ruined church was used up until the mid 19th century for Church of Ireland service. The church has associations with St Patrick and according to local history was either founded by him or visited by him.
Dimensions: 60m by 40m. There are around 150-200 graves in the cemetery.
Parking: 2-3 cars at the entrance gate.
