Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 77: `Here there is (or was - I have heard rumours of its destruction) a souterrain of considerable extent and complexity, for the greater part excavated in stiff boulder clay with no masonry lining. It had an entrance-chamber roofed with large flat stones, supported on upright pillars; two of the latter were the lower ends of ogham stones, broken to make them of size suitable for the purpose of the masons'.

Power et al/1992, 231: `Discovered 1905 in NW quadrant of ringfort...McCarthy (1977, 181--3) records four sub-rectangular chambers'.
