Mass Pits of this Locality, Written by Georgie Breen VII Standard.In the penal times Mass was offered in the "Mass Pit" in Annagh now called Mount Salem to the rere of Mr Casey's farmyard.
The Mass Pit in Killeen is situated in a field north of Killeen called "Burying Meadow". There stood there many centuries ago the ancient church of Killeen. The holy water font of the church is still to be seen, beside the Mass Pit. It is a piece of rough freestone with a hollow in it 9" deep and 3" wide.Mass was also offered in the open air near the present chapel of Killanure a few perches from Burke's Cross in John Delaney land. The Holy water font used in the ancient chapel of Killanure was brought to the "Mass Station"
