Crannógs -  Monuments of County Clare
 
Crannógs are ancient Irish lake dwellings on artificially constructed islands on which houses were built. Crannógs were constructed of layers of material such as mud, brushwood and stones set inside a palisade of closely-set wooden stakes which consolidated the structure and acted as a defensive barrier. There are 23 recorded surviving crannógs in County Clare.
