Monument Type: Ringfort - unclassified

In a prominent position, close to E end of a ridge, on Inis Mór. This National Monument, known locally as Dún Eochla, is a restored bivallate cashel, defined by an inner oval drystone rampart and an outer subrectangular one. The inner rampart has two internal terraces with interconnecting steps, and an entrance at NE. The interior contained two houses of which no visible surface trace survives; a circular clearance cairn now stands in the centre. The outer rampart, also partly terraced, has an entrance at SSE.
