Situated on a low rise in a low-lying landscape c. 200m SW St Peter’s church and the medieval settlement of Drumcondra (ME006-012----). This is a circular flat-topped mound (diam. of top 11m NE-SW; diam. of base 28m NE-SW; H 4.5-5.5m) with some trees defined by a slight fosse, which is most visible (Wth of base 1.5m; ext. D 0.4m) SE-SW. There are slight traces of a possible bailey (dims 22m NE-SW; 26m SE-NW) to the NE defined by a slight scarp on the NW side. 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 revised upload: 22 October 2018
