The Columban monastery (ME017-044012-) is within an ecclesiastical enclosure (diam. c. 300-350m), now fossilised in the curving street system outlined in part by Carrick, Castle, Cross, and Farrell Streets, the Fair Green at the W, and the line of the medieval town wall on the S and SW. It is possible that this enclosure was an ancient and abandoned Royal pagan site before it enclosed the monastery. (Swan 1998) Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 2 July, 2014
