BBC Doing Documentary Similar to Our Proposed Documentary

As we speak the BBC is producing a documentary with the emphases on Milltown. Therefore, the focus of this blog will change to reporting on Irish Cillini.

We are currently compilling a list of Cillini throughout Ireland.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

A cillín is an unconsecrated burial place for children unbaptised at the time of death. Suicides, the mentally ill as well as criminal were also buried in cillíns.

The word is thought to come from Latin cella [1].
