Creeve Graveyard is located in the townland of Creeve, Elphin, County Roscommon.


The graveyard is said to date back to the 1300s. St Finnian of Clonard founded a monastery on the site in the early sixth century, which was occupied by the third order of the Franciscans.

There are multiple small, unmarked stones in the graveyard. Inscriptions date only from the 18th century onwards. There are tombstones with Latin inscriptions said to be of priests and bishops.
