Heritage

The Early Ecclesiastical Enclosure at Loona contains the ruins of Loona church, as well as a children’s burial ground. A water hole was excavated within the area, which the landowner claimed to be a spring well and which has since been filled in.

The children’s burial ground is situated roughly in the middle of the enclosure, though no trace of burials or grave markers is now visible. The only remaining evidence of Loona Church is its south wall, which stands almost 2.5 metres in height, and some stone debris nearby.
