25(a) a mound or platform , prob. in most cases of earth,
used as a seat or stand for spectators, but also as a post
of outlook; it varied in size and shape, being often large
enough to accommodate a number of persons, but some-
times apparently intended for only one; it may in some
30cases have been circular; at the great interprovincial
assemblies each king had a special f. and there seems to
have been a f. set apart for women. There was sometimes
a f. in or close to a chief's `dún.' There was a f. at Tara,
identified by Macalister with a large circular mound still
35existing (see Temair Breg, PRIA xxxiv C 244 - 246 ).
