Kilneuair Church

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


This site replaced Killevin as principal church of the Lord of Glassary and the NMRS believes that it was built using Killevin's stones because tradition says they did not require dressing. But as traces of an older circular structure can be traced ( inside churchyard at N and W most easily), and this has been identified with the Columbian site 'Cella Diuni' (reading Kilneuair as Yew Wood), it would perhaps be more likely to relate to that. On the inside, to the east of the nave door, a now virtually invisible five-toed print called The Devil's Hand is carved on a sandstone block. wideford Posted by wideford
