Situated on a slight SW-facing slope in a low-lying landscape. This is a large subcircular to subrectangular grass-covered area (dims 56m NW-SE; 44.5m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (at ESE: Wth of base 4.6m; int. H 0.8m; ext. H 1.3m), and an outer fosse S-SW. It has curved corners at S, NW and N, and a gap (Wth of base 2.5m) at SE is probably the original entrance. 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: 25 February 2019
