Situated on a rise towards the top of NW-facing slope. This is an overgrown circular area (diam. 38m NE-SW; 38m NW-SE) defined by an overgrown earthen bank (at NW: Wth of base 8.5m; int. H 0.9m; ext. H 2.6m) and an outer rounded fosse (at NW: Wth of top 7m; ext. D 0.5m) SW-N-NE. The monument is overlain by a NE-SW road just S of centre but the perimeter of the rath survives beyond it E-S as a scarp. The original entrance is not identified. Archaeological testing (06E0168) by P. D. Sweetman immediately to the E on the S side of the road produced no related material ( 2006:220). 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: 18 February 2021
