Located just SE of the summit of a NW-SE drumlin ridge. This is a circular grass and scrub-covered area (diam. 37.4m E-W; 36.2m N-S) that slopes down to the SE defined by an overgrown earthen bank (at NNW: Wth of base 7m; int. H 1.6m; ext. H 1.7m) that has a field bank with an outer stone facing abutting its external face SE-W-NW. There is no visible fosse but there is an outer drain. There are gaps in the perimeter at NNE and E, but the original entrance is likely to be a widened entrance (Wth 5m) at SE. 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
