The graveyard at Killeagh, County Cork, lies close beside the Killeagh Railway Station on the Cork and Youghal line. The Protestant church of Killeagh, a plain but neat structure, stands on the north side of this graveyard, which is somewhat better kept than some of the neighbouring ones. Owing to the rather large number of headstones and table tombs, it presents a more symmetrical and finished aspect than id usual in County Cork rural churchyards, and the inscriptions on many of the older headstones are still quite legible.
