Lough Meelagh Crannóg

“Lough Meelagh” means “The Lake of the Marsh” and it is on the lake’s island that St. Ronan and St. Lasair were laid to rest.

There are several “Crannógs” on the lake.

These man-made islands, of timber and rock, were used for defence and habitation, and were occupied during the early Christian period through to the seventeenth century.
