Situated on a NNE-SSW ridge. This is a subcircular grass-covered area (dims 39m ENE-WSW; 32m NNW-SSE) defined by a slight earth and stone bank (at ENE: Wth of base 5.5m; int. H 0.4m; ext. H 1.6m) NNE-E-SW, reduced to a scarp (at WSW: Wth 3.5m; H 1.3m) elsewhere. There are traces of a fosse (at ENE: Wth of base 1.5m; ext. D 0.5m) N-E. The original entrance (Wth of base 2.1m) is at ESE. There is a relict field bank in the interior and others in the surrounding field.
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.
