Located on a fairly steep SW-facing slope. This is a subcircular grass and scrub-covered area (dims 53m N-S; 47m E-W) defined by an overgrown earthen bank (at SSW: Wth of base 5.6m; int. H 1.1m; ext. H 2.8m), and an outer water-logged fosse (at SSW: Wth of base 2.8m; ext. D 0.6m) that is missing N-NE. It is surrounded by an outer field bank SSW-NW-NE. The original entrance (Wth of base 2.2m) and causeway (Wth of top 3.6m; H 0.4m) are at SSE.
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.
