St Johnston - Carrigans     ~ Co Donegal.

 

We see here over the arch that there is an inscription . It says Erected by the Bishop of Raphoe, 1626.  It is very hard to make out now but the inscription takes shape better when viewed at a distance.  The bishop at the time was Andrew Knox, a Scotsman.  In 1857 during the Griffith's Valuation, this property was unoccupied.  I think it was one of the bishop's houses.
