Ballykinvarga: A fine and large stone fort measuring 49 x 39 metres internally, and built of large limestone blocks, it has a fine chevaux-de-frise of closely-spaced upright stones to impede attack, including a larger standing-stone (part of a destroyed megalith ?). The wall, surviving up to 4.5 meters high is typically built in vertical layers so that it is as much as 6 meters thick in parts. Remains of huts can be seen built against the wall inside.#.
