A Fort 12/9/38

There is a fort in Willie Sexton's field in Kilrusheighter. It is a bout a mile from the sea. There are no trees around it and it is in the middle of the field.
It is a very round fort and very high at one side of it.
There is a ring on the side of the fort and there is a track of two feet in the middle of it. Those tracks are always green and never change. People say that it was there that they used crown the kings.
