Located on the S-facing spine of a N-S drumlin. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 67.2m N-S; 63m E-W) that slopes down slightly to the SE. It is defined by an earthen bank (Wth 4.4m; int. H 1.1m; ext. H 1, at NW to 2m at SE), with an outer fosse (Wth of top 3.4m; Wth of base 2.2m; ext. D 0.4m) SE-W-NW. The original entrance (Wth of base 1.4m) and causeway (Wth of top 2.7m) are at S. A NNW-SSE field bank overlies the interior towards the perimeter at W. 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
