Parish

Kilfountan Church and Calluragh burial ground/Teampall Fionntain:

A roughly D-shaped or sub-oval enclosure within which are the remains of an oratory and rectangular hut, a cross-inscribed ogham stone and a bullaun stone. A quernstone from the site, probably of Disc A type (Caulfield 1969, 64 and 69), is now in the Museum in Cork. Children were still being buried here in the 19th century (OSNB Kildrum, 31). The site is located in the low-lying, level plain that lies N of Dingle Harbour.

Cloghnagalt/Cloch na nGealt: This bullaun stone is located about 30m W of the Glannagalt river and about 20m E of a ringfort (KE036-059----). It consists of an irregularly- shaped block of sandstone with a roughly flat upper surface out of which a roughly circular depression has been carved.
The stone is .49m high, .89m wide and .74m thick and the depression measures .37m in diameter and .09m in depth.

An Choill Mhór

Monument Type
Parish

This large boulder, 1.78m x 1m x .25m thick, has been decorated at either side of its smooth upper surface with a cup-and-3 circles.
Beside the E design is a small cup-and-circle with a possible outer circle. The long, linear groove extending NW from the E cup-and-3 circles also appears to be artificial.
The stone straddles the low remains of a disused field wall and, if in its original position, suggests an Early Bronze Age or earlier date for the field system. However, it may well have been removed from elsewhere for reuse in the wall.

Scheduled for inclusion in the next revision of the RMP: Yes

Description:

This irregularly-shaped boulder formerly lay on the strand at the base of the low cliffs that border the S side of Tralee Bay (see KE037-084----).

It is very likely that the stone may have fallen to this position from the land above due to erosion of this area by the sea.
