Situated towards the NW end of a NW-SE drumlin ridge. This is a circular slightly domed, grass and scrub-covered area (diam. 37m WNW-ESE; 36m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 5-5.5m; int. H 0.4-0.8m; ext. H 1.8-2.1m) with bushes that has been removed NNW-NNE, and traces of an external fosse (at SE: Wth of top 3.4m; Wth of base 2.5m; ext. D 0.3m) that has been replaced by ponds and a ditch N-E. There are gaps in the bank at S and SW but the original entrance is likely to be that (Wth of base 1.9m) at ESE. 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
