This mound is in the grounds of an old gentry house in the village of Ballynacorra just outside midleton.
It must be about 6m high by about a diameter of 15m.
Its hard to know exactly what it is without further reseach.
For being ancient: it is very close to an early Church site and is not marked as a motte or such. On the against side: it is in the grounds of a gentry house and could possibly be a folly.
To back this up is the path leading to the top and the chair on top.
