The ecclesiastical complex at Killmalkedar or the Church of Maolchaodair is one of the most fascinating collections of church sites and remains in Munster. This stone, which has long attracted the interest and craftsmanship of Brian de Staic is found near the chancel arch of the church.
From The analysis of the style of the inscription, it has been suggested that it may date back to the second half of the 6th century.
Kilmalkedar/ Cill Mhaoilchéadair was a very important monastery in the early medieval period, not least because of its situation on the pilgrimage route, Cosán na Naomh (the Saints’ Path), which continues on to Mount Brandon. Although it began as a monastery, probably similar to that at nearby Riasc, it became the wealthiest parish in all the diocese of Kerry in medieval times and many reminders of this wealth can still be seen there today.
