Located on the summit of a NW-SE drumlin ridge, it is described as ‘Tullyarran Fort’ in gothic lettering on the OS 6-inch maps. This is a circular grass and scrub-covered area (diam. 49m N-S; 46m E-W) defined by an earthen bank (at NE: Wth of base 2.8m; int. H 0.4m; ext. H 1.3m) and hedge with traces of an external stone facing, and slight traces of an external fosse or drain (at NE: Wth 0.9m; ext. D 0.2m). The original entrance is not identified.
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.
