Item image
Located on a fairly low NE-SW ridge. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 46m NE-SW; 43.5m NW-SE) defined by an earthen bank or scarp (at NW: H 2.9m) with some trees that is separated by a fosse (at NW: Wth of top 4.6m; Wth of base 3.3m; ext. D 0.75mE from an outer bank (Wth of base 4m; ext. H 0.9m), both of which only survive W-NE. The perimeter is barely traceable E-S, and there is no identifiable original entrance which may have been in this quadrant. The rath (ME006-051002-) is immediately to the NE. 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
