"About twenty of the victims were buried on Friars' Island, where fir-trees on a mound show their grave to-day. Numbers of others were buried in a corporate grave in Templecarne churchyard, marked by an ancient memorial cross taken from Saints' Island. Some twenty of more of those unfortunate pilgrims, however, had travelled from Connacht, and their relatives arrived to carry home the dead. They were poor people and local tradition has it that they carried the dead bodies on their backs all the long and mountainous journey to their homes in the west."
