(NC 7269 6282) An Rath Chruineach (NAT) Enclosure (NR)

OS 6"map, (1964)

A hut circle. A 'tunnel' is said to have been discovered in an adjacent field many years ago.

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909.

An oval stone-walled hut circle about 9.0m N-S by 8.0m transversely within a wall spread to 2.5m. It has been mutilated on the NW, NE and SW by the erection of fences. The entrance is in the south. Extending westwards and north-eastwards from the hut are a few stone clearance heaps probably from contemporary cultivation plots. The name could not be confirmed. The 'tunnel', possibly a souterrain, was not located.

Hut surveyed at 1:2500 scale.

Visited by OS (J L D) 27 April 1960, (R L) 12 July 1971 and (N K B) 14 July 1977.
