Item image
Situated on a slight rise in a level, low-lying landscape. This is a slightly domed (H 0.4m), grass-covered and circular area (diam. 25.5m N-S; 25m E-W) defined by a slight earthen bank (at E: Wth of base 4m; int. H 0.1m; ext. H 0.7m) that is largely reduced to a scarp (at W: Wth 5.5m; H 1.1m) with some bushes. There is no visible fosse, but the entrance was probably the slight gap at ESE. The following 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
