Site Type




Probable early ecclesiastical site - Ard Ferta (Breanainn). Remains inside the walled burial ground include 'a cathedral building [St Brendan's] that can be dated variously from the 11th to the 17th century, based on a study of its architecture. There are two other churches on the site, a late 12th-century church called 'Templenahoe' and a 15th-century chapel called 'Templenagriffin''. It is also the site of a round tower, which fell during a storm in 1771, and two ogham stones (Moore, 2007, 11, 37-8).


0.86m x 0.23m x 0.15m (measurements taken from pdf of 3d data)


Badly damaged, some text surviving on two angles (up-down?), pocked in bold scores. Second C (or S if read up rather than down) strangely positioned towards the centre of the face, rather than using the natural edge as a stemline like the other surviving letters.
