Site Notes

Cuppage et al/1986, 302: `A roughly D-shaped or sub-oval enclosure within which are the remains of an oratory and a rectangular hut, a cross-inscribed ogham stone and a bullaun stone'.

Okasha/Forsyth/2001, 165: `The remains at Kilfountain are typical of the early ecclesiastical sites of the south-west. Within the sub-oval enclosure there are the remains of a dry-stone oratory and a rectangular building. As well as the inscribed stone, a bullaun stone and a quernstone of Disc A type were discovered here. .. The site was in use as a ceallúrach until the nineteenth century but nothing is known of its early history'.
