Located on a rise on an undulating and generally S-facing landscape. In 1969 this was a circular overgrown area (diam. c. 45-50m) that slopes down to the SE. It was defined by an earthen bank (at W: Wth of base 13m; int. H 1.6m; ext. H 1.3m) and an outer fosse (at W: Wth of top 5.5m; Wth of base 3m; ext. D 0.4m) but the original entrance was not identified. The growth had been removed and the visible earthworks greatly reduced by 1995 (OSAP). 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. Revised by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 26 October 2018
