Situated on a rise in an undulating landscape and just S of a small canalised WNW-ESE stream and c. 30m SW of the point where it turns SSE. This is a raised circular and overgrown area (dims 50m E-W; c. 45m N-S) defined by a wide, rounded fosse E-W-NNW and the remains of an outer earthen bank S-W and NW-N, being incorporated into a field bank N-E-S. The NW quadrant has been quarried away. The original entrance is not identified, but a possible causeway (Wth of top 3m; H 0.4m) is in the fosse at E. 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
