The following 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. Date of upload/revision: 10 July 2007 Site discovered in 1977, has been excavated for a short season each year by J. Bradley since 1980. Excavation revealed that while the monument has had a long history of occupation the main phase of the crannog dates to early Christian times. At that time it consisted of a mound of stones and clay c. 40m across defined by wooden piles. A circular house 11.2m in diameter is associated with this phase (RMAHS 1983, 2-31; 1984, 86-93; 1985-6, 79-92).
