Lisnacree Graveyard just outside Kilkeel at the bottom of the Mourne mountains in Co Down. Now home to a small family or two of sheep.

All shot by hand, using long exposures as it was raining, no tripods, no flash, no lights and all photos and videos edited the same day into a little snippet of history from the area where I grew up.

Thought the least I could do is create a video, as it’s been at least 15 years since I was there and have to say its been neglected and become run down during that time. Some more grave stones would be visible with preservation efforts. Many of the granite stones from the walls are now on the ground. Sad to see history deteriorating.
