Item image
Situated on the NE-facing slope of a low NE-SW ridge in a low-lying landscape with a wet marshy hollow (dims c. 125m NE-SW; c. 50m NW-SE) c. 40m to the E. It is not recorded on any OS 6-inch map, but it is visible on OSI aerial images (2005) and Digitalimage. This is a D-shaped grass-covered area (dims 44m ENE-WSW; 42.5m NNW-SSE) that slopes down to the E (H 1.3m). It is defined by traces of a low bank (at ENE: Wth of base 9m; int. H 0.1m; ext. H 0.5m) that is largely reduced to a scarp (at W: Wth 5.5m; H 0.5m). There is no visible fosse or entrance, and the straight side (L c. 30m) is at N. 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
