Cemetery notes and/or description:

An isolated graveyard about five miles southwest of Londonderry, formerly assiciated with the Taughboyne Church of Ireland. The building site dates back to 560 A.D. when it began as a monastery chapel.

In 1627 a new church, St. Johnston Presbyterian, was begun to replace the old chapel but it was never completed or used. Instead restoration of the former church was begun and continued in 1887. Taughboyne Church has a five bay hall, a bellcote over the porch and a stained glass window in the sanctuary.

Presbyterians were forbidden from burying their own dead at this time so many are interred in the burying grounds of their local Church of Ireland.

Taughboyne Parish Church takes its name from the Irish, Tigh Baithin, or the House of Baithin.

Located in Taughboyne Parish, County Donegal, near Churchtown, two miles north of the town of St. Johnston.
