Taking leave from my venerable word and history distorting monk during Ailech I, for reasons of sanity, I paced up Greenan Hill along the ancient road on March 16, and was fortunate to finally meet the owner of the old farm and all the fields on the northern slope up to the monument. He not only confirmed that the road came down the hill past the cottage but he could also tell me that in the decades of working the fields he never made any findings, no pottery or weapons of any kind or age. If Greenan would have been this great palace and seat of power, than surely there would be some traces of activity at least at the upper end of the road. Like the finds Ian Leitch keeps turning up from the other site at Aileach Mor and hinterland by just walking the fields, i.e. tools from the Stone Age up to the Iron Age, burn marks and remains of circular structures. But there are no signs of habitational human activity on the hill at all, at least not so far.
But I may have found one stone belonging to the lost tumulus. It seems to be in the right location, is about and very badly guessed 80 meters from the gate and south eastwards from it. I found it by stepping in a hole and the stone coverers partially a waterlogged hollow. The surface is reasonable flat and the stone itself appears to be over 4 feet long by 2 feet wide and circa 4 inches thick.
