Situated on top of a ridge in an undulating low-lying landscape. This is a raised subcircular and grass-covered area (diam. 24m NNE-SSW; 21m WNW-ESE) defined by a scrub-covered earthen bank (Wth of base 6-6.5m; int. H 0.2-0.3m; ext. H 1.3-1.9m) separated by a fosse (Wth of top 5.5-6m; Wth of base 1m; ext. D 0.2-0.4m) from an outer bank (Wth of base 3m; ext. H 1m) that only survives SW-N-E. The widened entrance through the inner (Wth of base 4m) bank and a causeway (Wth of top 2.6m; H 0.35m) are at E. The monument has become overgrown since 1969 (Digitalmap). 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 November 2018
