Caherdaniel Stone Fort

Map Reference: V544592 (0544, 0592)

There is a large ruined cashel to the west of Caherdaniel. It sits on a rocky outcrop, covering most of the summit. The wall on the west and north is almost intact and the combined heights of the wall and outcrop in that area is probably greater than 6m. The interior height of the wall is now probably no more than 1m. The cashel is more ruinous in the south and east and the entrance is probably in that area.

The internal diameter is about 20m. Although there are many stones scattered throughout the interior of the fort, some of the bedrock is exposed, showing that the original floor level is more or less as it is today. A short distance away is a smaller cashel. It is very ruinous and the walls are grass grown and scattered.
