Situated on a slight rise in an undulating landscape. This is a slightly raised and domed grass-covered area (dims 36m WNW-ESE; 30m NE-SW; H 0.5-0.8m) defined by an earthen bank (at WNW: Wth of base 4m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 1.3m) W-N that is largely reduced to a scarp (at ESE: Wth 4.3m; H 1.7m) and hedge. There are traces of an outer fosse (at WNW: Wth of base 4.5m; ext. D 0.1m) that is largely reduced to a berm (at ESE: Wth 2.7m). The original entrance (Wth of base 2.4m) is at E. 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. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 31 October 2018
