It is in a fort on the hill of Aghlisk overlooking the Turlough of Gurranes famous for its races. The fort is in good preservation and consists of mound and ditch. The garth is 150 feet in diameter. The present entrance to the cave is in the north-west part of the fort, half way between the centre and circumference- it is not the original entrance, but an opening caused by the sinking of one of the roofing flags- but to all appearance the original entrance cannot have been many feet away.Some time ago, with the consent of Mr. Plealy, on whose land the rath is, Mr.

J. A. Glynn, Mr. Kirwan, and myself got the sunken flag removed a few feet and turned aside so as to make the entrance wider. The first chamber widens towards the inner end as usual in all the souterrains. The roof from the present entrance to the end consists of twelve large flags. The entrance to the second chamber is as usual to the left and at the very end of the side wall.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
