You will require a Broadband Connection to view this video of Anhid.

Anhid graveyard is located just outside the town of Croom. This graveyard is cleaned by a very hard working local committee every year, and is currently in immaculate condition. There is only One gable wall that remains of the old church. The two rivers, the Maigue and the Camogue join up behind the graveyard, making this a very scenic location.

The oldest headstone to be found here was to Fr John Cantillon, who was buried in Anhid church in 1723.There is a  headstone in memory of Daniel Kennedy, Parish Priest, St Munchin’s, who died 15th September 1878. There are three tombs on the left-hand side of the graveyard, and one on the right.
