This fort is marked on the information board as you come into Lough Gur. What is interesting at this time of year is the circular patterns of growth within the Lough itself.
Obviously as one corner of the lake has been reclaimed/ filled in then it is likely that the overall level of the lake has risen. Perhaps there are more sites underwater.
Much of the folklore of the area speaks of an enchanted city beneath its waters.
