Located on a slight rise in a col between the Slieve na Calliagh ridge c. 400m to the S and the hill of Drumlerry rising over it c. 600m to the NW, with lower ground to the W and NE. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 40m WNW-ESE; 39m N-S) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 5-5.5m; int. H 0.2m at ESE to 0.8m at WNW; ext. H 1.8-2.1m) that is reduced to a scarp ESE-WSW, and an outer fosse (at WNW: Wth of top 6m; Wth of base 2m; ext. D 0.3m) that is largely reduced to a berm (at ESE: Wth 2.3m) that melds into the ground SE-W. 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: 1 November 2018
