The overgrown site within the timber fence.


This interesting site was discovered in 1868 while the outer bank of an early church was being removed.
It's sort of a souterrain, though very short, whose side walls and ceiling were made using stones. Some of these stones were ogham stones re-used both for lining and roofing. During the excavations of this gallery, six of the ogham stones used as lintels were removed and placed on either side of the souterrain, three are upright on the south side, two are upright and one lying on the north side. Four other ogham stones are in the walls of the gallery, which is 4.90 metres long, 1.30 metres wide and is aligned to west-southwest (250°).
All the ogham stones have clear and very distinguishable ogham signs on all their edges.
The site is in a private field. We walked on a dirt path for about 300 metres, then crossed the field towards northeast for about 100 metres. A timber fence encloses the souterrain and the stones to protect it, but whereas the surrounding field was perfectly mowned, inside the fence the grass was so high that the stones were almost hidden! I had to tread on the grass to be able to take some decent photos.
