Cemetery of the Church of St Joseph, Ackinduff, Killeeshil Parish, County Tyrone, North Ireland. The church dates from 1861 and is located near the intersection of Whites Road and Fashglashagh Road. The church contains a wooden 'penal' cross that dates before the 1800's, and was used in secret Masses held in Alter Glen a short distance from the church. The name 'penal cross' refers to the period from 1691-1869 when a series of laws passed by England were used to suppress the Catholic religion and the Irish population.
