Situated on a slight N-S ridge in a low-lying landscape with a canalised N-S stream c. 40m to the E. This is a raised subcircular to subrectangular and grass-covered area (dims 27.5m NNE-SSW; 27.5m WNW-ESE) defined by a small earthen bank (at N: Wth of base 3m; H 0.3m) that is largely reduced to a scarp (H 0.6-0.9m) with an outer fosse (Wth of top 6.5m; ext. D 0.3m) at S that is largely reduced to a berm (Wth 2-3.5m). The ramp entrance (Wth of base 3m) is at SSE. 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
