Located on a slight rise on the NW-facing slope of NE-SW ridge. This is a raised grass and scrub-covered subcircular area (dims of top 30m WNW-ESE: 25m NNW-SSE) with some rock outcrop on the summit defined by a scarp (at SSE: Wth 19m; H 2.5m; at NNW: Wth 4m; H 1.7m) separated by a berm (at S: Wth 6.4m) from an outer earthen bank (at S: Wth of base 3m; int. H 0.5m; ext. H 0.7m) with some bushes and there are slight traces of an outer fosse N-SE. There is an entrance (Wth of base 2.3m) in this outer bank at SSW. On the summit there is a raised platform (dims 15m E-W; 10m N-S; H 0.4m) in the SW quadrant. The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987).
