Achill Sound Cemetery
« on: Saturday 20 May 17 23:57 BST (UK) »
I believe this cemetery was named so in the 1980s. Can anyone tell me what the name is today and where it's located?  Thank you.

Only one I can find is Glencoe/Granaghan Cemetery,  Achill Sound.
It has a Facebook page.

I've found another newspaper article that refers to it as Polranny Cemetery. Could they be the same and what address is it?

The name isn't marked on the map but searching using Locality brings you to this spot.

which seems to be on the opposite side of the sound

This list might interest you, see the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th on the list

Polranny seems the most likely to be known as Achill Sound Cemetery as it's practically in Achill Sound.
