Located on a shelf towards the bottom of an E-facing slope. This is a subcircular grass-covered area (dims c. 32m E-W; c. 26m NNE-SSW) defined by an eroded earthen bank (Wth of base c. 15m; int. H 0.1m at N to 1m at S; ext. H 0.2m at S to 0.7m at N) and an outer fosse (Wth of top 9-15m; ext. D 0.2-0.5m). The perimeter is absent at E and the original entrance may have been there. 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: 26 February 2019
