Killelane burial ground (KE043-157002-) Cill Fhaoláin:

Killelane

Situated on the W slopes of Knocknahoran, this rectangular burial ground is occupied by grave mounds and markers, the possible remains of an earlier circular enclosure, a leacht, 2 cross-slabs and the foundations of a rectangular building. One of the cross-inscribed stones (KE043-157004-) measures .66m in height x .2m in width and bears on its S face a Latin cross with slightly expanded terminals to head and arms.

The above description is derived from J. Cuppage, 'Corca Dhuibhne. Dingle Peninsula archaeological survey. Ballyferriter. Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne' (1986), no. 851. In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. Date of upload: 8 August 2013
