The authors report that a stone trough found at the site was apparently removed in the early 19th century and is now located in a house near Killorglin.

"Through the kindness of Mr. Foley I have been able to examine the stone, and take the photograph which accompanies these notes. It is a trough, cut out of a stone, which measures 4 feet 4 inches by 3 feet 3 inches on the outside, and 1 foot 1 inch in thickness. It has always been known as "Finn Mac Cumhaill's Saucer." Its history, as far as I could learn, is that it was at Caherconree-where it may be presumed it got its name- up to the year 1830, or about that time, when it was brought down from the mountain by some of the men of this district, and presented to Mr. Michael Foley, of Anglont, who was the grandfather of the present owner...The trough is of the red sandstone of the mountain. The sinking is regularly cut to about 7 inches deep, forming a vessel of that depth, as shown by the sections, and 3 feet 3 inches long by 2 feet 2 inches wide, capable of holding about twenty-five gallons. In later years its earlier associations would appear to have been forgotten, and at one time it was utilized for farm purposes. At this time, Mr. Foley informed me, a hole was formed in one end near the bottom, and an overflow notch cut on the top; otherwise it has suffered little injury."
