Underground passage at Dunleckney cemetery. Note: I do not have a published source for this information. Some neighborhood youngsters gave us a tour of the cemetery when we visited, and they pointed out the southern passage and told us that, according to local legend, it went originally to Ballymoon Castle. The passageway was narrowed by growth, but it looked deep enough for the unwary to slip a leg at least into it. I did not explore it, so I don't know whether it is stone lined or clear at all below ground level. We were busy all day clearing around old gravestones enough to read the inscriptions. Mary
