CRANNOG? of the Early Christian Period.
SMR NO: ARM 021:037
Irish Grid Reference: J01523627
Sitename: LOUGH GILLY, DANES'LOUGH
Townland: CREEVE, DRUMMILT
CONDITION: substantial remains
At the N end of Lough Gilly is a domed mound rising in the centre to a height of 2m above water level. It is roughly circular, c.24m across SW-NE. Dense vegetation covers the site, even the perimeter, obscuring any struct- ural details. Thus it is not possible to confirm whether the feature is artificial crannog or simple a natural mound. Access to the site in dry weather is possible along an overgrown isthmus to NE. On the 1835 OS 6" map it is shown as "Island" c.40m from the N shore of the lough.
Enclosure of uncertain period
SMR NO: ARM 021:044
Irish Grid Reference: J00983616
CONDITION: traces only
The field where this monument was located has been harrowed and planted with crop. The area of the site could be observed fro Loughgilly Church as a higher coloured stoney area with some dark patches.
