PLAQUE: Templepeter Church and Cemetery
What remains of this ancient church has few
dateable features, while the dated headstones
are a reminder that the cemetery is the resting 
place of people born in the 17th century. During
the half century since the last burial took place
here in 1949 this treasure of the past had
become completely obscured by vegetation.
In 1990 a group of local people set themselves
the task of transforming and preserving Templepeter.
This plaque was erected to the memory of
JOHN ESMONDE 1920-1994
who inspired and led this project. ( click to view image )
