Situated on a slight rise on a fairly level landscape. This is a circular, raised and grass-covered area (diam. 24.5m ENE-WSW; 23m NW-SE) defined by an earthen bank (at WSW: Wth of base 5.5m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 1.7m; at ENE: Wth of base 9m; int. H 1m; ext. H 2m), with some trees and an external stone facing W-N. There is no visible fosse and the original entrance is not identified. An ENE-WSW field bank clips the monument at N. 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
