Located at the crest of the NW-facing slope of a hill. It is described as ‘Lisakilleen’ – lios of the Burial Ground – on the OS 6-inch maps. This is a circular grass and rush-covered area (diam. 23m N-S; 21m E-W) that slopes down steeply to the NW. It is defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 5m; int. H 0.4m; ext. H 1.1m) S-W-N, and the remains of a fosse (Wth of top 5m; Wth of base 2m; D 0.2m) elsewhere. An entrance is not identified and there is no evidence of burial. 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: 5 September 2018
