Item image
Situated on a NW-SE ridge, it is described as ‘Sallow Fort’ on the OS 6-inch maps. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 30m N-S; 29m E-W) defined by a fosse (Wth of top 3.2m; Wth of base 2m; int. D 0.7m; ext. D 1m) and an overgrown outer bank (Wth of base 8.2m; ext. H 0.7m), best preserved SSE-SW but visible all around. There is a line of boulders (L 6.2m) on the edge of the platform at S. The interior is bisected by a NE-SW field bank with a drain on the SE side. 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: 3 September 2018
