Located towards the top of a steep NW-facing slope and within the W edge of a deciduous forest. This is a circular overgrown area (diam. 33.4m E-W; 32m N-S) that slopes down (H 2.6m) to the WNW. It is defined by an earthen bank (at ESE: Wth of base 6m; int. H 0.8m; ext. H 1.6m) which has been damaged by two N-W modern field banks outside it at E. The perimeter is reduced to a scarp (at WNW: Wth 3m; H 2.1m) and an outer berm (at WNW: Wth 4m). The original entrance is not identified and it is enclosed by a field bank NE-S-N at the edge of demesne woodland. Rath (ME002-002----) is c. 150m to the SE. 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 Amended: 14 December 2022
