Kilmalkeader Church - West Kerry -Ireland 2023

This is the most important church site on the Dingle Peninsula. The site is traditionally associated with St. Brendan but was reputedly founded by Maolcethair, whose death is recorded in the Martyrology of Donegal under the year 636. There are no remains of the early monastery except possibly for the Ogham stone with the inscription of "Anm Maile Inbir Maci Brocann". The ruined Romanesque church visible today dates to the first half of the 12th century, and certain features are similar to those found in Cormac's Chapel on the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. Also visible on the site are a sundial, a large stone cross, and an alphabet stone (inside the church near the chancel arch). Some fine stones can also be found inside the church.
