Item image
Located on a slight rise in a gently undulating landscape. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 28m WNW-ESE; 26.7m NNE-SSW) defined by an earthen bank (at NNE: Wth of base 4.5m; int. H 0.4m; ext. H 1m) that is largely reduced to a scarp (at SSW: Wth 3.4m; H 1.1m). There is no visible fosse but the entrance (Wth of base 1.6m) is at E. The perimeter is truncated slightly by a NNE-SSW road bank at W. 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
