This seems to be marked as a ring-fort for some reason but this has a water channel around it which to me would suggest barrow rather than ring-fort.
Also the size of it and its proximity to Ballinascaula make this a possibility of being another one of this part of Limericks jumbo size barrows.
It must be about 5m high and Im not sure of the diameter but its big.
