Located on an undulating landscape N of Slieve na Calliagh ridge. A possible cursus was identified in 1995 as two very low parallel banks, 15m apart, with internal fosses extending N-S (L 210m plus) but its full extent is not known (Newman 1995). A standing stone, lying prone at the point where it meets a wide NE-SW field wall, may mark its NW end. Aerial photographs (GB91.DD.37; GB91.DE.05) from 1991 show the banks cutting elements of field system (ME009-108----) so it might be a late feature like a roadway. From its SE end another section could extend SW (L c. 290m), with a second standing stone (ME009-087001-) close to the turn. The course of this section is less certain, although it seems to terminate at a small, poorly-drained area.
