|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: Mountcashel Townland
Description of site:
This stonefort, as represented on the 1842 6” O.S. sheet, was of a circular shape with internal diameters centring on 25 metres.
(In relation to folklore, locals tell that in the late nineteenth century a man who cut bushes from this site lost the use of one of his eyes).
Note: For information on the Tower House within this townland refer to the relevant part of Section 3 of thesis: “Castles and Tower Houses in the Barony of Bunratty Lower”.
