I remember seeing this in that book by Geraldine Stout on the Ely O'Caroll area and it was described as a barrow. The OS map describes it as a barrow but then when you go to the Norht Tipp Arch inventory it is described as a ringfort.

What can I say except it is just outside of Templemore and easily viewable from the road. The ditch of the barrow is easily discernible.
