Notes about this historic site

1 An Irish Long Cross penny of Henry III (1216-72) was found at or near this location. The coin is class IIa (Seaby 6240), with reverse – RIC ARD OND IVE (Richard, Dublin). Issued 1251-4, out of circulation by c1280 at the latest – looks relatively unworn so probably lost well before then.
