Situated on a rise in a fairly low-lying landscape. This is a raised and grass-covered oval platform (dims 46m E-W; 34m N-S) with traces of a bank E-SW, and a fosse (at N: Wth of top 2.9m; Wth of base 2.4m; int. D c. 1.5m; ext. D 0.45m) NW-E-S. There are intermittent traces of an outer bank (at N: Wth of base 2.8m; ext. H 0.3m). The original entrance is not identified and there are some trees on the perimeter. 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: 22 October 2018
