Preban cemetery is located in the town land of Preban surrounded by the town lands of Kilballyowen Tomcoyle Tankersley and Ballinglen and in the parish of Annacurra. This graveyard has served the needs of the local communities and beyond for centuries. During the course of the 20th century the graveyard suffered from neglect, perhaps because of lack of use, and became seriously covered in vegetation. In 2010 a small group of local neighbours came together and set up a committee with the sole aim of cleaning away the overgrowth of vegetation and making it a more accessible place to visit. The initial cleanup sparked local interest and enthusiasm, and with support from LEADER and Wicklow County Council a detailed programme of research and recording has ensued.
