Raith Grainne & Cloenfherta - Rath Graine & Sloping Trenches : Cloenfherta

Another Ard Ri is remembered here, Lugaid MacCon. Legend tells how he gave a poor judgement in a case involving sheep, resulting in the collapse of his house on this site.  This is why it spills over the slope of the hill. He was removed from Kingship and Cormac MacArt replaced him.
