It is said that the whole embanked enclosure was dug by Crom Dubh with his two pronged spear.



"Crom Dubh".



The small and incomplete stack of stones - perhaps once a phallic pillar - beside "Crom Dubh",

now believed by some to represent Eithne, the Irish Persephone - corn-child and concubine of the dark god Crom Dubh,
wrongly identified with the stone on the right.
