Situated in a fairly low-lying landscape. This is a raised, circular and grass-covered area (diam. c. 22m N-S; c. 21m E-W) defined by an earthen bank (at S: Wth c. 3m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 1.2m) with some bushes separated by a fosse (at S: Wth of top 5m; ext. D 0.8m) from an outer bank (Wth c. 3m; ext. H 1m). The original entrance is not identified. The outer bank is truncated by a NW-SE field bank SSW-W. 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
