Currarevagh House Hotel Oughterard, Co. Galway.

A burial ground dating to the great famine of 1845-1849 caused primarily by the widespread failure of potato crops due to blight exists on the site of Currarevagh House Hotel, Oughterard, Co. Galway. The landowners (click here for further details) were well integrated into the local community. The bodies of people who were not brought to the Oughterard graveyard were buried on this site instead. A consecrated Protestant burial ground also exists here.

Teampall Beag is located 100 m east of Ballyquirke Lake and the church itself dates to early Medieval times. It was built on level ground and it and 'quite a number of burials' are sited within an enclosure along with a children's burial ground. The chapel is lying in ruins although in the past attempts were made to preserve the walls of this oratory.
