Item image
Located towards the bottom of a SW-facing slope and on the floor of a SE-NW valley. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 47m NE-SW; 45m NW-SE) defined by a slight earthen bank E-SW with some bushes but the perimeter is reduced to a scarp elsewhere, with a wide, deep and flat-bottomed outer fosse visible N-S-W. The original entrance is not identified. There is a cairn inside the perimeter at W which is thought locally to be the remains of a castle but no cut stone or outline is visible, and it is probably field stones. 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 January 2019
