Site Notes

Macalister/1949, 10, recorded this stone's reuse in an ecclesiastical context. Initially a stone 'in the wall of the ancient monastic church', it was subsequently laid, 'as the top step in a flight leading down to a church door', a situation that resulted in some damage. However, `the matter having been brought to the attention of the ecclesiastical authorities', the stone was returned to a position in the church wall.
