Situated on the summit of a hillock in an undulating landscape. This is a raised circular and grass-covered area (diam. 35m NW-SE; 34.5m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (at NW: Wth of base 5.5m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 1.5m) largely reduced to a scarp (at SE: Wth 6m; H 2. 5m) with intermittently visible outer facing stones. The bank and the interior support mature deciduous trees and there is no visible entrance but there is an outer fosse (Wth of base 2.2m; ext. D 0.4m) S-NW. 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
