Saints and Stones: St. Brendanís Oratory (Teampaillin Breanainn)

Dingle author Steve MacDonogh describes this site in his book, The Dingle Peninsula, in the section on Kilmalkedar Church: "Another, larger oratory lies in a field above the road about 300 meters to the west. It is surrounded by a modern wall, its rook has fallen in and it is supported internally by a modern arch. It pales by comparison with Gallarus, but it is nevertheless a good example of an oratory and is certainly earlier than Gallarus...Although this oratory and the presbytery beside the church (Kilmalkedar) have been named after St. Brendan, it is almost certain that St. Maolceadair was the principal monk here."
