There are small white crosses placed around the cemetery marking graves.

Directions to cemetery are as follows: Head out the Ardee Road past St John of God’s and keep to the main road past St Oliver’s Shrine. Once you come to the V in the road the cemetery is down a lane to the left of the V. The cemetery is signposted at that V.
