Subject

Lough Derg--Vicinity--Archaeological survey--Crannog

Description

Inishgarve or Moylederg Island was partially excavated (Davies 1946, 92-9). The island is natural but was possibly partially extended including the building of a landing quay. Objects recovered during the excavation ranged from Neolithic flintwork to post--medieval pottery but most of the occupation material seemed to derive from the medieval period. The island lies at the N end of Lough Eske beneath the Bluestack mountains.

The above description was derived from the 'Archaeological Survey of County Donegal. A description of the field antiquities of the County from the Mesolithic Period to the 17th century.' Compiled by: Brian Lacey with Eamon Cody, Claire Cotter, Judy Cuppage, Noel Dunne, Vincent Hurley, Celie O'Rahilly, Paul Walsh and Seán Ó Nualláin (Lifford: Donegal County Council, 1983). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated.
