Situated on a knoll on a S-facing slope of Teevurcher Hill. This is an oval grass and scrub-covered area (dims 23m N-S; 18m E-W) defined by an earthen bank (Wth c. 2m; int. H 0.8m; ext. H 1m) NW-ENE and SSE-WSW (Wth c. 2m; int. H 0.6m; ext. H 1.5m) and a scarp (at W: Wth 6m; H 3.6m) that melds into the natural slope elsewhere. There is no visible fosse, but the entrance ramp (Wth of base 2m) is at ENE. The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 31 August 2018
