Located on a terrace on a NW-facing slope. This is a grass-covered circular area (diam. 51m N-S; 51m E-W) defined by a grass-covered earth and stone bank with some large stones and visible facing-stones at W (Wth of base 5m; int. H 0.3-0.7m; ext. H 0.3-0.9m). The original entrance is not identified, and the interior is crossed by a meandering E-W grass-covered relict field wall (Wth c. 5m; H 0.3-0.5m) that does not survive outside the monument. The perimeter is slightly clipped by a NE-SW field wall at SE. It is probably a cashel. 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: 1 November 2018
