Item image
Located towards the top of the E-facing spine of a WNW-ESE drumlin ridge. This is an oval grass-covered area (dims 39m NW-SE; 31m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (at S: Wth of base 5.6m; int. H 0.1m; ext. H 0.8m), largely reduced to an external scarp (H 1-1.2m). There is no visible fosse or identifiable original entrance. The perimeter is slightly truncated by a NW-SE field bank at NE. 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 Moroe Date of revision: 3 September 2018
