Dingle Town Tour 1 (June 6)

Today we started with something we had not done on the Dingle Peninsula drive yesterday. Kilmalkedar Church or Cill Mhaoilcéadair is a ruined 12th-century Romanesque church that was a parish church until the 16th century. Very moving, as are all the churches and ruins we have seen.

The stone cross (just to the right and in front of the church).

The carvings apparently attest to the wealth of the parish.

The “eye of the needle” – if one can fit through it, one is certain to go to heaven.

The alphabet stone carved 550-600 CE.

The Ogham stone dates to 600 CE. Note hole in top.
