Item image
Situated at the tip of a short S-N spur overlooking rath (ME005-039----) which is c. 120m to the SW. It is described as 'Corskeltiagh Fort' on the OS 6-inch maps. This is a subcircular, slightly domed (H 0.5m), grass and scrub-covered area (dims 34m E-W; 30m N-S) defined by a slight but overgrown earthen bank (Wth of base 5-7m; int. H 0.2m; ext. H 1.3-1.6m) that is largely a scarp, and traces of a fosse (at NW: Wth of top 3.9m; Wth of base 2m; ext. D 0.2m) SSE-W-NNW. 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. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 4 September 2018
