SKELLIG B INTROSMR No.: KE104A001033-

Monument Type: Clochan

Cell B, to the east of Cell A, is built of very carefully worked large stones but there are no projecting stones inside or outside. The interior is square in plan, measuring 2.75m by 2.75m by 3m high. The corners are well defined and the corbelling leads to a large, square capstone. The cell is paved but much of this dates from the 19th century. There are two cupboard niches in the walls.
