Rath on a low hill, Gillygooly
Looking SSW from Tarlum Road

On the Northern Ireland Sites and Monuments website, it is noted as a platform rath with the following description:

On top of a drumlin with the ground sloping down on all sides & commanding a splendid view to N & E. This platform rath is relatively well-preserved. It is slightly pear-shaped, 34m E-W x 28m N-S. The interior has a slightly domed profile, but is generally flat & featureless. The perimeter bank is well preserved, 1.4m high internally, 2.5m high externally & 3.5m thick. It is planted with beech & thorn. There is no indication of an outer ditch & the site seems to have been created by scarping around the drumlin top.
