Situated on a NE-facing slope, with a NW-SE stream c. 20m to the NE. This is a circular grass and rush-covered area (diam. 27m NW-SE; 25.3m NE-SW) that slopes down to the NE (H 1.5m). It is defined by an overgrown earthen bank (Wth of base 2.7m at SW to 5.4m at NE; int. H 0.8-1m; ext. H 0.9m at SW to 1.5m at NE), with an outer fosse (at SW: Wth of top 6m; Wth of base 2.5m; ext. D 0.7m) which is reduced to a berm (Wth 4.5m) defined by a scarp (H 0.5m) N-E and replaced by a farm lane W-N. The original entrance (Wth of base 2m) is at ENE. 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
