This cairn, which has a fence running across the top of it, was described thus by Macalister: "The name seems to indicate that it stood open, and fairly complete, so suggesting the idea of a "house," till it was wrecked by the fence-builders."
The only other local name reported in the complex was noted by John Wilmot in a blog post, but is not found elsewhere. He indicated that the destroyed Cairn D is called the "Fairy Circle".

The Caves of Kesh are invoked in legends of King Cormac, Fionn Mac Cumhail , and the Dagda's son. The Heapstown Cairn figures in the legendary Battle of Moytura.
