Notes

At the NGR given there is an old burial ground, marked on OS maps, which may be supposed to be the cill-site of Killellan, eccles, which is the eponym of the nearby settlement of Killellan. The field immediately to the north of the burial ground is named on OS 6 inch 1st edn as 'Chapel Field'. Note that 4.5 km to the east lies Innellan (farm and adjacent settlements) which name may be connected to Killellan. Because of the early forms of the settlement-name at Killellan, it cannot be ascertained whether the dedicatee is Finnán or Fáelán.
