Situated on top of a small hill. This is an oval grass-covered and slightly domed (H 1.2m) area (dims 42m NNW-SSE; 33m WNW-ESE) defined by a scarp (Wth 2m at E to 8m at W; H 1.2m) WNW-N-SE, which melds into the slope elsewhere, with slight remains of an outer fosse (at WNW: Wth of top 17m; Wth of base 2m; ext. D 0.1m) SW-N. There is a ramp entrance (Wth of base 3.7m) at SSE. The base of the hillslope has a natural scarp NW-NNE, which morphs into a berm (Wth 15m) NE-SE.
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.
