Off the beaten tourist trap, we didn't know anything about this but happened upon it driving past and saw the sign for the cemetery. It was only when we got there that we came across the two statues. Although these 2 stones are situated in...More

We went to Boa Island especially to see the Janus Stones. This graveyard lays at the end of a dirt road, quietly tucked away in the bushes. We entered the yard which was quite overgrown and only a few recent stones were placed. The Janus...More

We visited on a dull and misty day which, if anything, added to the atmosphere of this very small cemetery with its mix of new and very ancient stones, which include, of course, the Janus statue. In truth we initially just went to see the...More

Popped in while passing to see the Janus figure. It consists of a man on one side and a woman on another. Considering how old the figure is, its remarkably well preserved. Also interesting to see that although the cemetry is hundreds (thousands?) of years...More

So little is known about these enigmatic figures. I have wanted to see them for years. Unprotected, down a side road, on the edge of a working farm, a simple sign, a small ancient graveyard .....if only stones could talk........they felt like a link to...More

Look out for the brown sign for Caldragh Cemetery to step into a peaceful prayerful space. Pre Christian times merge with Christian graves - our ancestors seemed to have no problem with old and new merging together. The Janus stone keeps its own counsel, and...More
