Situated on a fairly level landscape. This is a raised and grass-covered subcircular area (dims 55.5m N-S; 46.4m E-S) defined by an overgrown fosse, best preserved at S (Wth of top 6m; int. D 1.8m; ext. D 1.8m) but removed by farm buildings NW-N. There is a causeway (Wth of top 5.7m; H 0.5-1m) at E, which is the modern entrance. 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
