  1. A Fort.
    There are forts in my district. Ring is the name of one, and Rath is another and there are other smaller ones which are not so important. Ring is in Curragh Bridge and Rath is also there. If you stand on one you can see the other from it and they are both circular in shape.
    In the bottom of the forts there is clay and on top of that there are stones. There is an entrance in the middle. No one ever went down through it. There are old stories attached to them.
