St. Patrick's Cemetery, Killala, County Mayo, Ireland

As soon as you open these gates and hear that screech as iron hits iron, you discover rather quickly how creepy old this grave yard is.
 Then, as you walk into the cemetery, dozens of crows fly out of this lonely tree that guards over the graves that date back to the 13th century. Seriously, creepy!

 We really had to watch where we walked as one can find self stepping into a hole or over a pile of rocks hidden by tall grass.

 We were not sure what this was but I can tell you when you look down it is one big hole in the ground.

Cemeteries are generally peaceful places to walk in however this particular cemetery was down right eerie. The only cemetery I have ever felt eerie in (and I have been in hundreds) was that one cemetery in New Orleans St. Louis.
