Artificial Mound


The mound is roughly 3 metres high and fenced in by the farmer. It's cut on the north side by the hedge and road. To the south the field slopes down to a small strteam. There were some large stones thrown onto it in the western quadrant – these could be field clearance but looked distinctly structure-like.
It's marked on the OS map but not mentioned in the Carlow Inventory. Like a lot of the sites I saw this weekend, it could do with a clean-up. To the north-east is Moylisha wedge tomb and the cairn on Aghowle Upper.
