Description

 

SMALL ORATORY INTROSMR No.: KE104A001040-

Monument Type: Church

This oratory is built on a small artificial terrace at the eastern end of the inner enclosure. The interior is of superior construction to the large oratory and measures 2.4m by 1.8m by 2.4m in height. There is a small rectangular east window. The door has inclined jambs. The corners are articulated throughout, both inside and out. This structure is of later date than the large oratory. Nearby are the remains of a beehive cell which has been interpreted as a latrine—possibly a unique structure in the context of Irish monasteries of this date
