Staigue Ringfort, Sneem Co. Kerry.

Staigue Fort is about 2500 years old, it has walls up to 6 metres high and four metres thick at the base. There is evidence that the walls supported timber buildings.
A view out the front door
A panoramic shot from on top of the wall, click on it to enlarge if you look to the left beside the kid you will see the little storage area built into the wall.

Again an appearance being made by our Norwegian friend, in the picture you can see the steps to climb the walls.
The view from the top,
Close by the stream where they would get fresh water.
