Well I'll be, must do some more digging. Perhaps this place was an encampment for the Gallowglaigh?
1259 is approximately the first record of their service under Irish nobility. Norse clans, Corroghadh are approximately 100 men each, these encampments would be essential for the lot of them.
I am always interested in such topics as they are my ancestors, something that has kept me steadfast along lifes journey.
