Killagholehane Cemetery and Church
Church, abbey or monastery
Just 2km south of Broadford Village in County Limerick, visitors can discover the ruins of the Killagholehane Cemetery and Church, now considered a National Monument. The site includes a commemorative headstone for the War of Independence.

In County Limerick, just 2km south of the village of Broadford, sits the 15th-century ruins of the Killagholehane Cemetery and Church. The site is thought to be the location of an earlier Christian church, established after a peculiar summertime snowfall that covered the entire area, except for the field where the ruins sit. The church was later dedicated to Our Lady of the Snows.

Now recognized as a National Monument, the site also includes an important Republican burial plot with a headstone commemorating the death of locals during the War of Independence.
