|Description ||Leacanabuaile Stone Fort's walls have, as have the walls of nearby Cahergal Stone Fort, been reconstructed and measure almost 10 feet thick and almost four feet high. Its outer walls have been dated to as early as the 6th Century. In the enclosure are the also reconstructed remains of a circular building (with a souterrain) and three square buildings. The interior of Leacanabuaile Fort is much more complex consisting of a single circular building and three square buildings. Excavations have produced both Bronze and Iron Age objects. For the best photos on the web of this stone fort, see Brian McEllherron's site at http://irishantiquities.bravehost.com/kerry/leacanabuaile.html|
