I dont think they were intended to be rung full circle when hung. 
Perhaps someone who was a ringer and lived there adapted them so 
they could be rung even if the fittings are incorrect or maybe it 
was an attempt by McShane to imitate an english ring without proper 
knowledge of the necessary fittings etc a bit like the old 8 at St 
Peter Port Guernsey. I think in this country they may be considered 
as 'unringable' but also as a swing chime but given where they are, 
they present a novelty to visiting ringers.

In a sense they are neither one thing or another.
