|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: Sooreeny Townland
Description of site:
The single bank is very poorly represented over most of the ringfort. To get an indication of its condition refer to the site sections taken here (see site section Number 6, Bolume 1). These show that the bank is absent to the east and south with only slight trace to the north and west. Where it could be traced this single bank only averaged 40 cm in height by 2 metres in width.
As stated previously this site is of a somewhat oval shape. Measurements were made difficult due to the poor condition of the single bank. However field work suggested a north-south internal diameter of some 21 metres while that for the east-west area was closer to 17 metres.
There are no other features of interest at this site which is to the immediate east of the Ratty or Owenogarney River.
