H 0.3m; ext. H 1.2m) SSW-W, which is largely reduced to a scarp (at ENE: Wth 3m; H 0.3m) and hedge. There is no visible fosse or identifiable original entrance. Part of the perimeter has been quarried at SSE. The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987).
