A horse may be buried in Ballygara cemetery. In the Sligo library records I found the following tombstone inscription recorded for Grave 2 Side D:

"The pride of Ballygara tread softly o'er this spot. If blood can give nobility a noble steed was he, His sire was blood and blood his dam and all his pedigree. This slab is in remembrance of a famous thoroughbred that netted a fortune for the Mularkey family. In Black 47, the famine years, Dr. J.P. Mularkey purchased two cargoe of Oatmeal and 2 cargoe of Potatos and carted to Drumartin, Aclare, Tubbercurry as a gift. We shall ne'er see his like again."
