Item image
Situated at the bottom of a N facing slope. A small rectangular enclosure (dims c. 25m NW-SE; c. 20m NE-SW) is believed locally to be a church site, but there is no visible evidence of a church, other than that the font, now in the porch at the old Roman Catholic church at Rathkenny (ME018- 002----) c. 900m to the W, is thought to have come from this location, but the font came from the medieval church site (ME012-041----). This may have been a Penal church. There is a well c. 20m to the E of the enclosure. 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: 15 December, 2014
