The name Relignaman comes from the Irish "relig na mBan", meaning Women's Graveyard. It is a small,sub-rectagular enclosure, c.19m across, surrounded by a grass grown stoney bank 1.5-2.5m wide & 0.6-0.9m high. A clear gap on the W side, c.1m wide, is the original entrance. The interior surface is irregular. According to Reeves, there are 2 other specialised graveyards in the area, relig-na-paisde - children's cemetery & relig-na-fir-gunta - cemetery of the slain or of the wounded men. See SM7 for further details.
