The cemetery is located within the grounds of St. Mary's Church [Church of Ireland] in the centre of Doneraile town. The first church was built in 1633, but was rebuilt in 1726 by Arthur St. Leger, 1st Viscount Doneraile [d. 1727]. The spire, which blew down in 1804 was rebuilt in 1816. The church has been renovated several times since then.
