Situated at the SE end of a broad NW-SE ridge. This is a large subcircular or sub-triangular grass-covered area (dims c. 70m E-W; c. 60m N-S) that slopes down to the SE (H c. 4m). It is defined by an earthen bank (Wth c. 5m; H c. 1m) on rock outcrop W-N, and a scarp (at E: Wth 4m; H 1m) and outer berm (at E: Wth 5m) elsewhere. There is no visible fosse or identifiable original entrance, but a wedge tomb (ME002-037001-) is incorporated in the bank at W and a rectangular enclosure (ME002-037003-) is built against the inner edge of the perimeter at E. 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
