About: In 1934 the author of this article was made aware of a large stone on a lane on the lands of Charles Reilly of Ballyknockan in the parish of Kiltegan. The lane had been constructed some 50 years earlier by Mr. Reilly’s uncle and some bones had been uncovered. The author visited the site of the stone and carried out an investigation. This short report summarises the results of that investigation which concluded that the site located in a place known as the “rath field” contained a cremation burial.
