Located on a slight rise in a low-lying landscape with a small SW-NE stream immediately to the SE. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 44.5m ENE-WSW) defined by a grass-covered earthen bank (at WSW: Wth of base 5.5m; int. H 0.6m; ext. H 1.2m) with inner facing stones SSW-W but the bank is largely reduced to a scarp (at ENE: Wth 1.5m; H 1m). There is no visible fosse and the original entrance is not identified although there is a wide gap (Wth c. 10m) at S which is probably modern. 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. C0mpiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 31 October 2018
