Corr Áille (Carrauly)


Carrauly
Location

The early ecclesiastical site of Corr Áille must have functioned in connection with the pilgrimage to Cnoc Bréanainn, although its path passes around the opposite side to the site’s original entrance. Here, a stone wall or cashel encloses a beehive hut, a leacht (ancient stone platform), a broken cross-inscribed stone and a number of grave-markers that possibly commemorate unbaptised children. Outside the wall there are two further ruined beehive huts, one with an underground passage known as a souterrain.
