Situated towards the N end of a low ridge in an undulating low-lying landscape. This is a circular and slightly domed (H 0.7-1m) grass-covered area (diam. 23.7m NE-SW; 21.5m NW-SE) defined by an earthen bank (at SW: Wth of base 5m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H 0.8m) WSW-N that is reduced to a scarp (at NE: Wth 4.3m; H 2m) elsewhere. There is no visible fosse but there is a ramp entrance (Wth of base 3.9m) at SW. 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
