Ardfert is called in the original Irish Ard Feart
Ardfert is called in the original Irish Ard Feart, which is explained by the monastic writers the Height of the Miracles, but this derivation is to be questioned in this miracleless age and we must therefore conjecture that the true meaning is Hill or Height of the Sepulchres for Feart means sepulchre as well as a miracle.
