This mound is marked as a barrow on the OS map and is included in Archaeology.ie as a "burial mound".
It isnt very impressive maybe only 100mm high under all the scrub that is has grown up on it.

There is an interesing part of Irelands history located next door to it. The "Warhouse Famine Memorial".
It doesnt open during the winter months. I cant see it being too busy anyway.
