This embanked circle is very unusual. The outer ring is probably bigger than the Grange Lios and it also has a smaller inner circle.
The whole site is in a bad state and its very hard to photograph because its so overgrown.
It is marked as a mound on the OS map for some reason. It is marked on the information board at Lough Gur as a stone circle and also in O'Kellys works.

Daveyravey below appears to have been to it as well but I think the grid ref and the name he has given it is incorrect.

Old Photo of Lough Gur O

Old Photo of Lough Gur O, interesting to anyone who has been to it. It looks a lot different today, much more over grown.
