Ring-Forts in the Barony of Moyarta, Co. Clare, and Their Legends
by Thomas Johnson Westropp

Part II.—Kilkee to Carrigaholt


Lisheencrony, which gives the townland its name, lies near the garden of Liscrona. It is well preserved, but of little general interest. The outer ring is 4 feet high and 9 to 10 feet thick, with a sort of low banquette, like that at Doonaghboy, around its inner face. Inside this is a shallow fosse, barely 4 feet deep and 18 to 21 feet wide. The inner ring is 8 to 11 feet high and 12 feet thick, enclosing a garth 93 to 95 feet across, and practically circular.
