Item image
Situated on a slight rise in an undulating landscape. This is an oval grass-covered area (dims 41.4m E-W; 28m N-S) defined by an earthen bank (at S: Wth of base 7.5m; int. H 0.7m; ext. H 1.9m) SE-SW, but the perimeter is largely reduced to a scarp (at N: Wth 6m; H 2.2m). There is no visible fosse or identifiable original entrance. There are some broad WNW-ESE cultivation ridges in the S part of the interior. 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: 15 January 2019
