Item image
Located on a rise in a relatively level and low-lying landscape. It is not depicted on any OS 6-inch map. This is a circular grass-covered and slightly domed area (diam. 48m E-W; 47m N-S) defined by a slight scarp. There is no visible fosse or entrance, but a wide fosse feature (Wth c. 5-10m) with an entrance gap at S is visible on the Digitalglobe image (2017). Rath (ME008-007----) is c. 180m to the ENE. 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
