Irish: (Children's Burial Ground) A Cíllín an area of ground once used for the burial of the unconsecrated dead, usually still born babies, or babies who were not baptised. However, these burial grounds were also often the final resting place of criminals, suicides and strangers whose faith remains unknown. There are many unrecorded and long forgotten Cílliní (Irish plural) scattered throughout the countryside.
