Description

GLEN TRINITY INTRO

SMR No.: WI023-014001-

Monument Type: Church

Temple-na-Skellig is located on a shelf above the southern shore of the Upper Lake, surrounded by steep cliffs and is only approachable by boat. The most westerly of the churches at Glendalough, it may have been built in the twelfth century AD. It is a small single-celled rectangular structure with a twin-light window in the E gable and a doorway at the W. Two fragmentary Latin crosses and several plain grave slabs are placed near the church. To the W is an associated platform where evidence of wattle huts connected by paved paths was found in an excavation conducted in the 1950s. The huts were apparently destroyed by an avalanche of slabs and a wooden house resting on a base of stones was subsequently built which had finds dating from the late twelfth to the late fourteenth or fifteenth century AD.
