Downs Hill, Co. Wicklow (close to Kilpeddar, Willow Grove, Delgany, Glen of the Downs and the N11)
Downs Hill used to be the site of a bronze age hill fort. As far as I know there are only two recorded hill forts on the east coast and they are both located near Delgany, Co. Wicklow.
A variety of walls are still visible on Downs Hill, some belonging to the original hill fort, others may be medieval or famine additions. What has been identified by a local archaeologist as a ceremonial road used by High Kings is running across nearby Calary Hill towards Downs Hill. This used to be a very important place in the ancient times.
Today most of Downs Hill is being used as a Coillte cash crop plantation, threatening the remaining visible archaeological remains.
Earlier this year I made a short video of what I believe to be cremation pits. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwZP9w5wtF4
These cremation pits have been bulldozed over by Coillte in their recent tree felling and replanting operations and are now under threat to vanish completely from the landscape.
