Heritage

Guesdian Graveyard is located along the road passing through Guesdian.  In the graveyard are the remains of the Kilbrenan Church, along with several headstones dating from the 19th and 20th century.  The earliest date from any of the stone in the graveyard is 1846.

Many burial sites within Guesdian Graveyard are marked with Celtic Crosses.  The Celtic Cross, which incorporates both Pagan sun as well as the Christian cross, visually represents the blended rather then conquered symbolism of the two traditions.
