Situated on a rise in a gently undulating landscape. This is a raised and grass-covered oval area (dims 36m N-S; 26m E-W) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 6-7m; int. H 0.2-0.3m; ext. H 1.6-2m) SSE-W-NNW, with a slight berm (at WSW: Wth 3.4m) at its base WSW-NNW. It is truncated by a NW-SE field bank at NE, and the centre is crossed by the remnant of a relict E-W field bank, confined now to the interior of the monument. The original entrance is not identified. 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
