Kermode/1994, Appendix B (=Kermode/1911--1912a), 15, argues that the site is that of a keeill.
A lack of excavation at the site has meant that the age of the keeill is not known. A nearby field is known as Faie Rollag, which Kermode/1911 suggests meant 'close of the graveyard', perhaps suggesting that there was a cemetery attached to the keeill.
Kermode/1994, Appendix B (=Kermode 1911--1912a), 15--18, argues that the inscriptions on the cross indicate a monastery on the site with a scriptoria.
Thomas/1971b, 190, on the basis of the inscriptions, suggests that it was a site which attracted pilgrims. Cubbon/1982, 265, agrees with this conclusion.
