History and description
Cahervagliar is a bivallate ringfort, 73 m (240 ft) in diameter with a lintelled stone entrance to the east. The name means "stone ringfort of sons of Lóegaire"; it was the fortress of the Cenél Lóegairi, kings in central Ireland. However, they did not build the fort, as they did not arrive until after 1172.
