Kilmalkedar Church

The OPW guy at Gallarus told us of two more sites in the vicinity that sounded interesting: a ruined 12th century church with an Ogham stone, a sun dial stone, and an alphabet stone; and a ruined monastery. We headed first to the church, Kilmalkedar Church, a 12th century Romanesque building, with the aforementioned stones quite intact.
Plus some other old-looking stones

Inside the church; faces, but not funny

The alphabet stone, probably used to teach

Back side

Chevrons, zig-zags, other figures typical of the age

Yes, Romanesque

More oldies

The sun dial

And the Ogham stone
