Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 166: `Hitchcock's notebook records that this stone was found about 1848 in the souterrain of a fort in a field called `Parkalassa' (parc a' leasa, `the field of the fort') on the townland of Brackaloon'.

According to Cuppage et al/1986, 124, it is possible that this was the univallate rath `situated on a W facing slope, in undulating pasture land at the base of Knockafeehane mountain...It was shown on the 1st edition of the OS map as a circular enclosure, but the site is now very densely overgrown and interfered with by field fences...The field in which this rath is located is called locally as Pairc na Claishe, not Pairc an Leasa, but it is possible that Hitchcock confused the two names'.
