Item image
Situated on the E-facing slope of a slight rise. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 32m E-W; 30.5m N-S) defined by slight traces of an earthen bank that are best preserved SW-WNW, and a wide, flat-bottomed fosse. A small berm separates the fosse from an outer field bank with trees. The original entrance is not identified but there is a possible causeway (Wth of top 3m; H 0.3m) 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
