Item image
Located at the S end of a low hillock on the floor of a N-S valley with a canalised N-S stream c. 50m to the E. This rath is described as ‘Lisataggart’ from Lios an Saggart – the Priest’s Lios – on the OS 6-inch maps. It is a raised oval area (dims 26m N-S; 20m E-W) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 7-8m; int. H 0.3-0.7m; ext. H 2-2.8m) NNW-E-SSW and a scarp elsewhere. There is no visible fosse and an original entrance is not identified. It has become overgrown since 1969 (Digitalmap). 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
