Located on a rise which is on a gentle NE-facing slope. This is a circular grass-covered and domed (H 1m) area (diam. 40m E-W; 39m N-S) defined by a slight earthen bank (at S: Wth of base 6m; int. H 0.4m; ext. H 0.4m) that is reduced to a scarp (at N: H 1m) W-NE, with an outer fosse visible as a berm (at N: Wth 4m) defined by a scarp (at N: Wth 4m; H 1m) W-NE, but a NW-SE field bank truncates the berm at NE. The original entrance is not identified. 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
