Saint Keiran’s Bed is level with the surface of the ground 70 by 45 links. There is a small river here which served the saint for a Dwelling House and Chapel, about 9 years ago, 1829, a very high spring tide rose here, and flowed? ¼ mile all round this bed, and several feet higher, but never touched the Bed, this is asserted by tradition.
In the townland of Doorus, parish of Doorus, Barony of Kiltartan and County Galway.
