Dún Naas

Dún Naas was a fortification associated with Luighdech Eithlenn, King of Leinster. It was built in 140 AD on the location of a previous fortification and was itself subsequently destroyed and rebuilt by Princess Tailtinn.

The site now consists of two north and south earthwork motes (earthwork mounds) the largest one remaining at the north.
