Site Type




There are no longer any visible remains of the parish church of Kinard/Teampall Chinn Aird (KE053-053001-) in the rectangular graveyard (KE053-053004-) known as Cinn Aird an Teampaill. The presence of two ogham stones (see also CIIC 188) and a bullaun stone at the site suggests that it is probably an early ecclesiastical site. The surrounding district is known locally as Tearmann Fhíonáin, from the patron saint of the Parish on whose feast-day a pattern was formerly held at the site (OSL; An Seabhac 1939, 150) (Cuppage et al, no. 863).


'Grit' (Macalister 1945, 182), 1.80m x 0.52m x 0.16m (Cuppage 1986, 328).


The inscription runs along one angle and across the top of the stone (Cuppage 1986, 328). Macalister (1945, 182) read the inscription from the top of the stone downwards. McManus (1986, 21), on the other hand, read from the bottom up and across the top.





Found in its current location in the graveyard in the townland of Kinard East and barony of Corkaguiney. (GPS coordinates -10.196619, 52.126261)
