Cemetery notes and/or description:
St. Mary's Church, Magheraculmoney Parish, Ardess, County Fermanagh (c1827). There has been a church on this site since the 14th century. The current shape dates from 1827. The pre-plantation graveyard served both Protestant and Catholic families in the district for almost three hundred years until 1903. The oldest of the 433 marked graves bears the date 1679. Ardess has a wonderful setting for its church and graveyard is surrounded by green fields. There's an old school yard and a 17th century rectory nearby. The present day church, which has been renovated in quite recent times, stands on the site of a much earlier church which probably dates back at least a thousand years. In the early part of the 17thC the church was taken over by the church of Ireland and has been used by it ever since but the graveyard has been used by all denominations. The church of St. Mary's is known by different names by various parts of the local community and thus reflects all traditions. This parish has also been called by several different names. A generation or so back it was known locally as Black Bog Parish. It was also known years ago as the Templemahery in the parish of Magheraculmoney in Ardess.
