Location of Killaan Holy Well

Hachures on the plan depict a depression in the ground where the well is located.

F1 Linear wall measuring 2.3m x 0.8m x .6m continues northward in a ‘D’ shape. Widdth of structure (exterior to exterior) 4m. A break in this wall may represent an entrance to the south of the structure. The interior of the structure would have measured 2.6m in width giving the width of the wall.

F2 A line of seven stones 0.6m to the north of F1 may represent an earlier wall/ substructure.

F3 Possible surface/path/ exterior to structure.

F4 Possible kneeling stone within the path. Measures 0.84m x 0.62m (max). Indentations may represent the knees of a saint?
