Ordnance Survey Letters by John O'Donovan and Eugene Curry, 1839

Parish of Kilnaboy (e)

There is a large Cahir called Cahir More within a few yards of the Cross, thirty six yards in diameter, built of a very large well shaped stones, the walls in some places seven feet high on the outside having a considerable batter or taper, and eight feet thick at the top (at height of seven feet). The ground inside is considerably over the level of the field, and there is a very narrow opening near the south side within, which leads to some subterranean chambers, inaccessible on account of the narrowness of the passage. They have no tradition about it.
