|A Survey of Monuments of Archaeological and Historical Interest in the Barony of Bunratty Lower, Co. Clare by William Gerrard Ryan|
Part 2: Chapter 10: Kilfinaghta Parish: Curraghkilleen Townland
Description of site:
Field work did note trace of the single wall to the west. Here along an 18 metre stretch this feature averaged 60 cm in height by 2 metres in width. Due to a combination of heavy vegetation and large stones no trace could be found of the original entrance.
Though a circular shape is suggested for this site on the relevant 6” O.S. sheet (1922) field examination found a more oval shape. Due to the nature of the vegetation cover accurate measurements could not be taken. However field estimates centred on 32 metres for the north-south internal diameter and 26 metres for the east-west one.
There is no known folklore associated with this site.
