Located on a rise towards the bottom of a NE-facing slope. This was described in 1969 (SMR file) as a circular overgrown area (diam. 25.5m NW-SE; 25m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 5.5m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 1.1m) at S but largely by a fosse (at N: Wth of top 4m; Wth of base 1.5m; int. D 1m; ext. D 0.2m), except where the perimeter had been removed SW-NW. The ramp entrance (Wth of base 1.9m) was at NE. The visible monument had been removed by 2000 (OSAP). 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: 22 February 2019
