Situated on a rise in an undulating landscape. This is a subcircular grass-covered area (dims 34m NE-SW; 32.5m E-W) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 4.5-5m; int. H 0.2-0.4m; ext. H 1.5-2.1m) and hedge, with outer facing stones W-NNW. There is no visible fosse and the original entrance is probably that (Wth of base 2.5m) at SE. 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
