Caherconnell Fort

September 20th, 2017

Today we visited Caherconnell Fort.  Caherconnell Fort is a medieval, exceptionally well-preserved stone ringfort located in the Burren.

Firstly we watched a movie based on Caherconnell and life long ago in the fort.

Thereafter we went to see the fort and its ruins.

We saw graves, ruins of houses, a fire pit, animal shelters etc.

This was a great experience for the children to see first hand what a fort is and how it looked.
