CONDITION: SOME REMAINS
"A circular earthwork is shown on the 1863 OS map but this has been extensively damaged by cultivation. A large perimeter bank, 3.7m wide x 1 .2m high above the interior survives around the SE where it has been incorporated into a field boundary, but elsewhere only a shallow scarp can be seen. The diam. NW-SE is c.49m. Traces of an external ditch can be seen around most of the circumference & in 2 places, S & E, it is preserved to a depth of 0.9m below ground level and is 3.4m wide."
"The Grey Stone Field", formerly containing a standing Stone of uncertain, prehistoric origins
SMR NO: ARM 017:054
"In his notes, Paterson recorded that in Killycarn townland "the Grey Stone Field takes its name from a vanished standing stone" on the land of Mr.W. Flack JP. The site cannot be precisely located, but a valuation book shows that Mr. Flack owned property at the grid reference given below, and so the stone must have been nearby.
