Site Notes

Higgins/1987, 272: `an early Christian cemetery about five hundred metres North East of Templemoyle Old Church near Tysaxon, Athenry...[the] stone may have lain recumbent upon a grave originally. Human bones were visible in the section of the sand pit where it was found at a depth of about 40-60 cm. It is one of the few Co. Galway carvings which has a definite visible association with burials'.
