Description

 

SKELLIG CELL E POINT1SMR No.: KE104A001037-

Monument Type: Clochan

Cell E lies to the north-east of Cell D and at a higher level than the other cells. It is built of relatively small stones and has stepped plinths and projecting stones at the upper level. It is quite spacious inside, 3.65m by 3.58m, and is almost 4m high. Though almost square in plan, it becomes circular in shape as it reaches the roof. Most of its paving dates from the 19th century. There are some projecting stone pegs on the interior and there are holes in the walls to take wooden beams for a loft.
