Item image
Situated on a SE-facing slope. This is an overgrown area (diam. c. 35m) obscured by spoil which is defined by a scarp (at S: H 1.6m) and an outer fosse (at S: Wth of base 3.2m; ext. D 0.4m). The perimeter is cut by a NE-SW field bank at N. Inside the perimeter at SW is the collapsed roof (dims of opening 1.5m x 1.2m) of the beehive chamber of a souterrain, which is filled with stones. 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
