The Wild Geese Interviews Toni Maguire About Cillini

The Wild Geese is a webzine that documents the history and heritage of the Irish. It has drawn millions of readers to its more than 600 online features during its 14+ years online.

Most recently they featured a three part interview with Toni Maguire, the archaeologist and anthropologist from Belfast who has uncovered the graves of thousands of unbaptized babies in Milltown Cemetery and the Bog Meadows area known as cillini.

Cillini means "little graveyard" in Irish. 


  1. Hello Everyone,

    Can I just draw your attention to an important point within the articles which in inaccurate. Northern Archaeology (NAC) will in fact be carrying out the excavation phase of the investigation into the Milltown Cemetery site. At this point I am on site every day in the capacity of consultant for the families.

    Regards, Toni
