Situated on a rise that is on a small NE-SW ridge overlooking the NW-SE Kilmainham stream, which is c. 140m to the SW at the closest point. This is a raised circular and grass-covered area (diam. 34.3m NW-SE; c. 31m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 5.1m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 2.5m) ESE-W-NW, that is reduced to a scarp (at NNE: Wth 3.2m; H 3m) with a stone-faced field bank at the base elsewhere. There is no visible fosse or identifiable original entrance. 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
