Located just E of the tip of a NW-SE spur. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 29m E-W; 28m N-S) that slopes down to the NE. It is defined by an eroded and grass-covered earthen bank (Wth 8m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 0.6m) with slight traces of an outer fosse (Wth of base 3.5m; ext. D 0.4m). The original entrance is not identified. Rath (ME005-067----) is on an equally high hillock c. 140m to the S. 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
