The following is an extract from an archeological survey of County Donegal that was carried out in 1983 in Churchtown : this early ecclesiastical site at Gartan is the reputed birthplace of Colmcille, the greatest of the Donegal Saints.It presently consists of a complex of sites in and around a graveyard enclosed by a modern stone wall.

Within the graveyard are a number of grave markers and the remains of a structure known as the 'Abbey'. The surviving walls have been much interfered with and in places are obscured. An ashlar quoin occurs in the SW corner. The walls are composed of mortared outer blocks with a core of small stones. There are a number of gaps in the S wall. The remains of a badly preserved cross stands about 20m S of the graveyard. The arms of this cross are also only barely perceptible. A heap of loose stones lie against the S base of the cross. The stones are connected with a turas or pilgrimage performed at the site.

Just SW of the graveyard is the St Columcilles Chapel. This is probably the chapel described in 1622 as being in repair and having a thatched roof. Apparently in use in 1810, the E gable and upper part of the E window fell during a storm at the end of the century.

It was subsequently repaired; the missing jamb fragments of the W door and window in the S wall were replaced with modern concrete. The ruin is a simple, rubble-built rectangular church with ashlar quoins. The complex of sites is located on pasture land sloping towards Lough Akibbon.

Thanks go to the Donegal County Library in Letterkenny for most of the inscriptions, and Jerry Lou & Berni for photographs of headstones, as well as more inscriptions. Also, thanks go to Ellen Rowan Taylor for an additional five inscriptions recorded in 'The Journal of the Association for the Preservation of the Memorials of the Dead' 1905 (Ellen is looking for ROWAN some place in Northern Ireland - if you can help her, you can email Ellen at ert@fwi.com)
