Ballywiheen Church/Teampall Bhaile Bhoithín: The remains of a simple rectangular church are situated in a graveyard near the foot of the E slopes of Croagh Marhin.
Cross-inscribed Stones:
(1) A sandstone slab measuring .85m in height, .22 to .36m in width and .1m in thickness. A simple inscribed cross occupies the upper portion of both faces. The arms of one cross appear to have slightly expanded terminals but the stone is very weathered and these expansions could be the result of spalling.
The above description is derived from J. Cuppage, 'Corca Dhuibhne. Dingle Peninsula archaeological survey. Ballyferriter. Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne' (1986), no. 981. In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research.
