Situated on the lower SE-facing slope of a hill and at the crest of a NE-facing slope. This was described in 1969 (SMR file) as a low grass-covered area (diam. 6.5m E-W; 6m N-S) defined by a slight fosse (Wth of top 3.5-4.8m; int. D 0.1m at SSW to 0.5m at NNE; ext. D 0.3-0.4m) and an outer bank (Wth of base 3-3.5m; ext. H 0.7m), which was missing WSW-NW. An entrance was not identified (max. ext. diam. 17.5m NNE-SSW). Visible evidence of this monument had been removed by 1995 (OSAP). 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: 8 January 2019
