Located just E of a summit at the N end of a NNE-SSW drumlin ridge. This is a raised circular, grass and rush-covered area (diam. 37.6m NNW-SSE; 34m NW-SE) defined by an overgrown earthen bank (Wth of base 3.5-3.8m; int. H 0.5m; ext. H 1.4m at S to 2.8m at N) and an outer fosse (Wth of top 5-6.4m; Wth of base 2.3-2.5m; ext. D 0.7-1.2m), which has been extended into a pond at N and re-cut E-SE where there is a counterscarp bank (Wth 3.2m; ext. H 0.3m). There is an entrance which has been narrowed (Wth of base 1m), but no causeway, at SE. 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
