Situated on a low E-W ridge with a small W-E valley and stream just to the N. This is a raised oval and grass-covered area (dims 35m E-W; 22.8m N-S) defined by slight traces of a bank (at ENE: Wth of base 6m; int. H 0.4m; ext. H 2.1m) ENE-E that is largely reduced to a scarp (at ESE: Wth 5m; H 1.9m) separated by a fosse (Wth of top 8.5-9m; Wth of base 2.5m; ext. D 0.7-1.3m) from an outer bank (at ENE: Wth of base 4.4m; ext. H 1.2m) with a few bushes. There is an entrance through the inner (Wth of base 2.1m) and outer banks and a causeway (Wth of top 2.6m; H 0.7m) at E. 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
