Item image
Located on a small hill in a gently undulating landscape. This is a raised, circular, grass and scrub-covered area (diam. 60.5m NE-SW; 56.5m NW-SE) defined the lip of an overgrown earthen bank (Wth of base 6-7.5m; int. H 0.2m; ext. H 2.9m at NW to 3.8m at SE) separated by a fosse (Wth of base 3.5-5m; ext. D 0.2-0.4m) that cannot be traced SE-SSW and WSW-WNW from traces of a possible outer bank (Wth of base c. 8m; ext. H 0.4m) that are only visible at SE and might be the natural slope. The original entrance is not identified. 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: 9 April 2019
