Ringfort at Loonamore


An early Patrician site, there is a considerable rise of land here which would suggest a possible ringfort, rath, or cashel at one time. According to the land owner, the field that holds this ring fort is called Fortfield.

Though now there is no trace of a fort visible, the name suggests such a site once existed here.  The fort would most likely have been where there is a natural rise in the field. There is also a large, roughly circular hollow area that is now used to shelter cattle.
