Temple Cronan


Map Reference: M288000 (1288,2000)

Temple Cronan is dedicated to St Cronan of Roscrea or Tuamgraney. This small rectangular church possibly dates from the 12th century.



There was a simple lintelled west doorway with inclined jambs. This is now blocked and a pointed north doorway was inserted in the 15th century.



The church had a high pitched roof with decorated corbels at the corners.



There are several masks built into the walls.



Close to the southeast corner is a tomb made from two large slabs leaning together and two triangular end panels.



To the northeast is a similar, though smaller, tomb.
