OBJECTID: 62880 Monument Identifier: KE04413 Classification: TOHO Irish Grid Easting: 90634 Irish Grid Northing: 102376 RMP_PROP: 1 County ID: 12 WebNotes: On a rock outcrop is the fragmentary remains of a rectangular tower (int. dims. 8.85m E-W; 5.8m N-S), now heavily encased by ivy. The ground-floor appears to be occupied by a single chamber which was covered by a rounded vault which is almost entirely fallen. The best preserved ope is a window midway along the W wall. This has a splayed embrasure with a segmental-arched head, and a narrow lintelled light. All of the other opes appear to be badly ruined; there was probably a central window in the N and S walls and a doorway in the E wall. There are two wall presses in N and S walls and one in the W wall. Only part of the walling above ground-floor level survives.
