The other remains of the olden times
in this Parish are the ruins of Cahers and Lisses of which there are
- Cahermore in the Townland of Ballyallaban.
- Doon, a large fort which is planted in the same Townland.
Cahermacnaghten in a Townland of the same name.
See Covenant made in 1675 between Hugh and Cosny O’Davoran
in which special mention is made of the door and inside of the caher,
from which it would appear
that it was inhabited at the time.
Caher-Feeny in the Townland of Feeny.
Caher-Berneen in the Townland of Berneen.
A caher in the Townland of Garve-cloon.
A caher in the Townland of Gleninsheen and called after it.
A caher in the Townland of Lismacteige, from which that Townland
is sometimes called Cahermacteige.
A caher in the Townland of Cloonmartin.
A dun in the Townland of Croagh north, called Dun-Torpy.
A dun in the Townland of Dooybardan, from which that
Townland takes its name.
Lis-Mic-Sheedy in a Townland of the name, and
A caher in the Townland of Lislarheen.
It is difficult to believe that all these cahers were raised by the
Firbolgs. It is my opinion that they were inhabited by the race of Modhruadh
down to the beginning of the 14th century, when they began to build Castles.
