Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 183: `A mound[2] of earth and stones, now much degraded, with a row of three standing stones running in a line north and south on the eastern side, and a fourth stone to the N.W. The two northern stones are inscribed.

[2] The mound is called Cnoc na fola, "hill of blood"'.

Cuppage et al/1986, 255: `Cnoc na Fola is a low, sub-rectangular cairn located on the low ridge overlooking Minard to S. The level field in which it occurs is named Páirc na Fola and was traditionally the scene of a bloody battle in ancient times. The cairn reputedly marks the graves of those slain. It measures 7.4 x 8.2m and is .6m high. The cairn material is a mixture of earth and stones many of which are quartz. Four low standing stones occur along the perimeter and 3 further prostrate slabs may formerly have stood upright'.
