Situated on a rise in a low-lying landscape with a canalised ENE-WSW stream immediately outside it SE-SW. This is a subcircular grass-covered platform (dims 38m NE-SW; 30m NW-SE) defined by a scarp (at N: max. H 1.65m), which is separated by a fosse (Wth of base c. 5m) from an outer bank (Wth of base c. 7m) and outer fosse, both of which only survive SSW-W. There is a causeway across the inner (Wth of base 6.2m; H 0.7m) and outer (Wth of base 4.2m; H 0.3m) fosses 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.
