Magheradrool Church

Map Reference: J379513 (3379, 3513)

Magheradrool Church is a small rectangular structure with a stone dated 1607. The graveyard is entered through the roofless remains of a gatehouse. Many of the gravestones are plain. Some of them have crude initials and simple incised crosses. Most of the stones with inscriptions are 19th century. One stone, dated June 9th 1798, is to Richard Cordner of Ballynahinch. His death occurred on the weekend before the Battle of Ballynahinch and he may have been the man who was reported killed in a disturbance in the town at that time.
