Located towards the top of a SW-facing slope overlooking the NW-SE Kilmainham stream that is c. 200m to the SW. This is a subcircular area (dims 40m E-W; 34m N-S) that slopes down to the SW (H 2m). It is defined by an earthen bank and hedge (at N: Wth of base 4m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 0.5m; at E: Wth of base 5.3m; int. H 1m; ext. H 1.4m) N-E-S, but the perimeter is reduced to a grass-covered scarp (at SSW: Wth 1.5m; H 0.6m) elsewhere. There is no visible fosse but the original entrance (Wth of base 1.7m) is at E.
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.
