Located towards the bottom of a NE-facing slope. In 1968 this was a subcircular area (dims 37m NW-SE; 31.3m NE-SW) that slopes down to the NE (H 1.5m). It was defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 4m; int. H 0.4m at NE (downslope) to 1m at SW; ext. H 0.8m at SW to 1.7m at NE) that was incorporated in a field bank with an external stone facing SSE-WNW, with traces of an outer fosse (at SW: Wth of top 4.2m; Wth of base 1.5m; ext. D 0.5m) SSE-W-NE. The original entrance (Wth of base 2m) was at ESE. The visible monument had been removed by 1995 (OSAP). ` 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
