Ballyhuskard Graveyard lies in the townland of Ballynastraw, parish of Oylegate-Glenbrien, Co. Wexford, Ireland. It once served as the parochial graveyard of the former mediaeval parish of Ballyhuskard. It contains some seventy headstones many of which are decorated with scripture-based designs specific to the artisans who made them.

A plaque on the external wall remembers those buried here who were killed at the Battle of Vinegar Hill on 21 June, 1798. Tradition says they were buried in a mass grave which was unmarked and is now unknown. One headstone records a father and son who died on that eventful day. Vinegar Hill is just five kilometres away from Ballyhuskard.

Today, Ballyhuskard Graveyard is land-locked and difficult of entry and access now.
