Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 151: `A circular cemetery enclosure, about 1 mile S.E. of Dingle'.

Cuppage/etal/1986, 264: `Ballintaggart church (site of) and old burial ground. An Cheallúnach or An Lisín: This circular enclosure crowns the summit of a low, but prominent, hillock between Dingle Harbour and Trabeg. The site of a church is shown within the enclosure on the OS maps, but nothing more is known about this, and no visible trace survives. Children were still being interred there in the burial ground in the mid-19th century (OSBN Garfinny, 28). A low cairn of stones, including much quartz, lies c. 13m to E of the enclosure and 'other tombs' with great unshapen stones half buried' lay a little to E of this again (OSL)'.
