I attached a picture from a newspaper article but I cannot find the place in question.

So if anyone knows the place or has any idea where it is...Id be very grateful.

Thanks!

Ballaghadeerin or Ballaghaderreen is a place in Co Roscommon. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballaghaderreen

Clogher seems to be the location of an old stone fort on the Ballaghaderreen road
