Rules, Rubrics and Relations
The sites of Killora and Killogilleen are largely typical of small Irish Medieval churches. As such, they represent the two chief, traditional burial grounds for the modern ecclesiastical parish of Craughwell and Ballymanagh. Although the standing remains at Killora appear to date to the late 15th to early 16th centuries, there is evidence for construction and alteration from at least the late 12th to early 13th centuries (Chapple 1995, 6-10) (Pl. 1). Similarly, the majority of Killogilleen appears to be of late 15th to early 16th century date, there is some evidence to suggest that an earlier phase of church building occurred during the late 12th to early 13th centuries (Pl. 2).
