TV BBC2  Monday 30 March

3/4 Dr Art Hughes visits Paris, where he learns that the French capital's Irish college provided many of Ireland's priests. In Irish

During this programme it told about a Roman Catholic bishop who was buried in a Church of Ireland graveyard. This particular church was in a place called Desertcreat which I believe is in County Armagh.

Wondering how an RC bishop ended up in a COI graveyard. Th Blackmouths use to say that there was only a paper wall between the COI and the RC church. Seems like they may have been right. lol

Just thinking about this. Roman Catholics are not supposed to be buried in unconsecrated ground. So maybe this COI church graveyard was originally a Roman Catholic church graveyard. Down Cathedral,St Patrick's church and Christ church in Dublin were built in the 12th century. All were RC churches. 

Was this church in Desertcreat the same?
