Teampall Bhaile Bhoithín

Ballywiheen Church/Teampall Bhaile Bhoithín:

Baile  Bhothín


​​​​​​​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.
