Site Notes

Lacy/etal/1983, 268--270: `The early ecclesiastical site of Fahan consists of a modern graveyard, at a bend in the road. It is possible that this bend may reflect something of an earlier enclosure. Inside the graveyard is part of a ruined church. Fahan old Church: In 1622, the parish church was `well and sufficiently repaired' ... and it continued in use until the new church was built in 1820 ... The site of Fahan is situated in a valley at the foot of Collan Hill and Carrick Hill close to the shore of Lough Swilly'.
