|Pennies of Edward II, like those found at Lisnaran.|
Lisnaran contains the remains of circular and a rectangular structures, and may have featured more extensive defences outside the main enclosure. It was historically associated with the Viking longphort Linn Duachaill, but the combination of a hillfort with round and rectangular structures suggests a Gaelic Irish origin. The only find at Lisnaran was a wooden box in 1928, containing twelve silver pennies, all dating from 1279–1315 and from the reign of Edward I or Edward II as Lord of Ireland.
