Item image
Situated on the outer edge of a shelf on an E-facing slope. This is a raised circular grass-covered area (diam. 35m NE-SW; 35m NW-SE) defined by an earthen bank (at NE: Wth of base 8.3m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 2.9m) NE-SE or reduced to a scarp (at NW: Wth 1.2m; H 1.3m) but the perimeter is largely cut back elsewhere by ancient quarries. There is no visible fosse or identifiable original entrance, but it was probably a rath. 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
