Item image
Located on top of a small hillock. This is a raised circular and grass-covered area (diam. 37m NW-SE; 35m NE-SW) that slopes down to the SW (H 1m). It is defined by an earthen bank with some bushes (at NW: Wth of base 6m; int. H 0.7m; ext. H 1.3m) W-N and (at SE: Wth of base 7m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 2m) E-SSW but the perimeter is reduced to a scarp (H 2.5-4m) elsewhere. There is no visible fosse but the likely original entrance ramp (Wth of base 1.3m) is at ESE. 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
