M M I
Located 200m SE of the church at St. Peacaun's, on the E side of a small river and in
the centre of St. Peacaun's cell, is this fine example of a triple bullaun. According to
local folklore, one of them would always contain some water and until recently it was
used as a baptism font. It is said that the 'Butter Stone' was once held inside one of the
bullauns. The bullaun containing the water measures 0.40m in diameter and is 0.30m
in depth. The second large bullaun measures 0.30m in diameter and 0.33m in depth
while the shallow bullaun is 0.15m in diameter. The bullaun stone is lozenge in shape
and measures 1.3m in length and 0.90m in width.
