cemetery over a thousand years old. Known for the so-called statue of Janus - actually a figure with two faces called Janus as Roman deity.. I do not know to whom that offerings go, but just in case I dropped few coins also.

we found the stone circle at drumskinny and was told of the stone statues at boa island, really amazing history, but a bit hard to find as we weren't told to look for the cemetery. Lovely area to explore
