Caisleán na Muice

I was puzzled by the apparent ring fort on top of this hill. I was more puzzled when looking at old 6" and 25" maps the ring fort was identified as "Wood Tower, in ruins".
After a little trawling of old books I found the following entry in Canon Powers " Placenames of the Decies" , listed under Killmacombe,

" Wood Tower (O.M.), Caisleán na Muice – “The
Pig’s Castle”; built in 1814 – minus mortar – to
celebrate the fall of Bonaparte.

Surprising and interesting. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1277/comment/17662/
