This circle is right beside the road and there is a lovely welcoming wooden gate at its entrance.
There are a number of stones missing in one section of the circle but as the pictures show you can still get a very good idea as the shape and size of it.
Although Knocknaneirk NE is a more impressive circle, coming from an area with few circles such as Tipperary I was still very impressed by it.

This looks like, a very nice but incomplete circle. I couldn't get closer than the gate unfortunately because of a swarm of bullocks. I had 'not great' written on my map beside this one so was not intending on going to see until I spotted it through the field gate. Curse those bullocks! It does look pretty good from the gate even though the trees in FW's pictures seem much closer in real life. CianMcLiam Posted by CianMcLiam
