Located at the crest of a steep NE-facing slope down to a small SE-NW stream that is c. 50m distant. It is not depicted on any edition of the OS 6-inch map but it is visible on aerial photographs (GSIAP: N 32/71). This is a D-shaped grass-covered area (dims c. 130m E-W; c. 70m NE-SW) backing onto the slope down to the stream at NE. It is defined by a fosse (Wth of top 9m; D 0.9m) SE-S and by a grass-covered earthen bank (at SSW: Wth of base 6.4m; int. H 0.8m; ext. H c. 2.5m) and outer fosse (at SSW: Wth of top 5m; ext. D 0.7m) S-W, the bank declining to a low scarp as it proceeds N to the edge of the ravine scarp.
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.
