Site Notes

Raftery/1967, 219: `on a slight rise in a field about one hundred yards from the right bank of the Nenagh River'.

Okasha/Forsyth/2001, 193: `As pointed out by Raftery ... there is now no evidence any any human activity at the site, nor any historical evidence that there ever was any. The site is not mentioned in any written sources. Raftery recorded the local information that other cross-inscribed stones had been found there but had been 'rolled into the river by local children' ... The former presence of these cross-marked stones, along with the existing bullaun stone, suggests that this may have been an early ecclesiastical site'.
