Churches and Graveyards
Clare has a rich ecclesiastical heritage, the remarkable tradition of church building in this County goes back a thousand years. Along with providing a resting place for our departed and a place of remembrance, graveyards are of immense heritage value as sites of archaeological and architectural interest, as wildlife habitats and as repositories of local genealogy, sculpture and art.
