Cillín at Lisvernane

Thanks to Michael Moroney of Lisvernane who advises that the site photographed here is known locally as a cillín. Such sites are often associated with the burial of infants or adults that could not be buried in consecrated ground. This site lies quite high on the hill and may mark where someone died, such spots were often marked with a cairn.

The map update is to our Galtee 1:25,000 map published 2019.
