Fairy Forts are called Raths. There is one in Knockaderry. If you stand in it you can see three from it.
Once, a man named Johnny Murphy, was going up the road. He heard music and saw lights in the field under the rath. Three lovely dogs ran across the road into the rath.
There is a stone wall around this rath. Once, a man cut a thorn bush in the rath. That night his bed was full of thorns.
