Derrykeighan Stone

The Derrykeighan stone is incised with a unique Celtic design made by people living in this region 2,000 years ago.

It was discovered in 1977, built into ruined walls of St. Colman's Parish Church, Derrykeighan. It had been placed there when the church was rebuilt in the seventeenth century, though it is unclear if this was done deliberately or by accident.

Did you know?
The unique design is one of the earliest examples of Irish art, and is carved on local stone. It shows the influence of the Celtic culture reaching Ireland from the distant shores of Europe.
