Notes: 

Old Rahoon Graveyard is located at the junction of Bishop O’Donnell Rd and Rahoon Rd in the townland of Rahoon.  It is now encompassed within the western suburbs of Galway city.  The site of the medieval parish church of Rahoon is located in the southern central part of the graveyard although only fragments of the foundations survive.  It was built of granite with limestone window and door cases.  There is some evidence of an early ecclesiastical enclosure on the site and the two curving sections of the graveyard wall to the north and south may be associated with this. 

This project was funded by the Heritage Council and Galway City Council as an action of the Galway City Heritage Plan. An information leaflet for Old Rahoon can be downloaded below and printed copies are available from Dr. Jim Higgins, Heritage Office, City Hall, College Rd., Galway (091 536547091 536547).
