About: A cursus is a prehistoric construction consisting of two banks parallel to each other. They can extend for some considerable distances. Their function is not clear, although they appear to be associated with other nearby prehistoric features. This article looks at four cursuses in the South Leinster area, two of which are in West Wicklow, one which is just over the border in East Kildare and one in South Carlow.
