Abandoned church and graveyard
Abandoned church and graveyard
This church is now on a road that nobody would find because you wouldn't drive here unless you'd taken a wrong turn or were looking for this location. I took a wrong turn. The abandoned church is now very close to Cork's south ring road - but for this very reason the road it's on has been cut off and it exists on the end of the cul-de-sac caused by the closure.

The church is boarded up and has numerous CCTV cameras (presumably due to people breaking in). The surrounding graveyeard is immaculately kept and has some of the most impressive Celtic Cross gravestones I've ever seen.
