About

Raths commonly known as ringforts are enclosed farmsteads of the early Christian period and are the most common monument type in Ireland.

Corliss Fort is one of the best-preserved bivallate raths in County Armagh. It is a large rath with two surrounding banks (bivallate) and an intervening ditch. The fort is on the summit on a hillock overlooking a crannog in Lough Ross and two other forts in the townlands of Tullyard and Lisamry.
