Description

 

SKELLIG C INTRO
SMR No.: 
KE104A001035-

Monument Type: Clochan

Cell C lies to the east of Cell B and is very similar to it. It is probably the last cell to have been constructed. It is also built of large stones but not as refined. It is almost square in plan, measuring 2.75m by 2.6m, and again the corners are well defined, with the corbelling leading to a rectangular capstone. There are no cupboards or special features. This cell retains most of its original paving and there is a drain running down the centre of the floor, under the paving.
