Situated on a N-S ridge. The tower house (ME003-017002-) has a number of associated walls to the SE of it. These are up to 1.3m thick and include the SE wall with a large fireplace that has a segmental arch and part of the SW wall of a house (int. dims c. 9m NE-SW; c. 5m plus NW-SE) but the house probably extended as far as the tower house originally (dim. c. 20m NW-SE). The SW wall has a blocked round-headed doorway and a broken out garderobe chute, while in the NE wall (Wth 0.5m) that is probably not original is a segmental-arched doorway. The house is probably 16th or 17th century in date. 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 revised upload: 10 June 2016
