Located on a slight rise. In March 1983 a short rectangular cist with the crouched inhumation of an adult male but with no grave goods was discovered (NMI file). The long axis of the cist (dims 0.97m; 0.54m; H 0.48m) was aligned N-S, and its floor was paved with four rectangular slabs. (Cahill 2011) 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
