This mound is on the right as you come into Lattin on the R515. It is a quite huge mound. Must be at least 5m high. I'm not sure of its date, it may be a Motte but it is listed in the OS Map as a mound. bawn79 Posted by bawn79

Pobal Ailbhe: Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly - Christy O'Dwyer

"The tumulus at Lattin is most likely contemporaneous with the great burial mound at Newgrange"

The graveyard on the left coming out of Lattin is located up on a height above the road.
On closer inspection it is obvious it is built into some kind of mound. Again I'm not sure of its age.
