Located towards the top of the steep N-facing slope of Patrickstown Hill. This is a D-shaped area (dims 26m E-W; 25m E-W) that remains unplanted in a forest and slopes down to the N. The perimeter is defined by an earth and stone bank (Wth of base 3-4m; int. H 0.2m at N (downslope) to 0.8-0.9m normally; ext. H 1.2-1.5m). There is a drain (Wth of base 1m; ext. D 0.4m) outside the straight W side, which has probably been straightened. There are entrance gaps at ENE and SSW but the original entrance is not identified. There is an internal E-W scarp down to the N (Wth 0.8m; H 0.6m) N of the centre. 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
