I am unsure of the exact story why the Plaques were created, but they mainly are posted so the Gravestones can be read without entering the Cemetery.
They also prevent further damages (to the existing Graves) as the plaques have the same information as the Gravestones .
The Cemetery is from 1423 when the Banada Priory and Friars of Corpus Christi were present in the area, something no longer the case.
The earliest Grave noted on the Plaques is the 15th Century, then 16th Century, another 15th Century, then 1740, 1785, 1820.
