Panoramic view of the rath from the south

This large rath is about 58m diameter with a good entrance causeway in the east. There are traces of a low inner bank outside of which is a massive ditch about 12m wide. The height of the rath platform above the bottom of the ditch, particularly in the north, is very great.

Some views of the ditch

There are no traces of an outer bank. The interior of the rath is bare. There are some well-established trees planted along the edge of the platform but the outer slopes have now been cleared of thorn and bramble.
