Item image
Situated on a rise in a slight hollow of a gently undulating landscape. This feature is not depicted on any map but it is faintly visible on OSI images (1995, 2005, 2013-2018) as well as various views on Google Earth. It was described in 1968 (SMR file) as a subcircular raised area (dims 40m NNW-SSE; 35m ENE-WSW) defined by scarp (at S: Wth 6m; H 1.2m; at N: Wth 5.5m; H 1.3m). There was no visible fosse, but the entrance might be on the slighter scarp at E. See the attached enhanced view from OSAP (1995) 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 upload: 10 July 2007 Amended: 2 August 2022
