Item image
Situated on the summit of an undulating ridge. This rath is described as ‘Lisnacross’ in gothic lettering on the OS 6-inch maps. It is a raised circular and grass-covered area (diam. 35.5m N-S) planted with mature deciduous trees which is defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 6-8m; int. H c. 0.5m; ext. H 1.5-1.8m), with an outer stone facing. There is no visible fosse but the original entrance may be the gap (Wth of base 2.2m) at ESE. The cross (ME005-089002-) is at the centre. 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
