Knockbarron Wood: In the woods at Knockbarron, you have one of the finest examples of an esker system which is a long narrow winding ridge of sand or gravel, deposited by a stream flowing under a glacier. A Slieve Bloom Eco-Walk is a feature of this site and the flora and fauna are especially diverse on this walk. At the foot of Knockbarron, on a gravel ridge, are the medieval remains of St Bairrfhionn's church of the holly ridge- drom chuilinn (Drumcullen). The construction in the early 13th century of a Norman mote and bailey beside the church above the river Camcor.
