Flat-topped circular mound (diam. of base 39m; diam. of top 19m; H 4.4-5.2m), with traces of a possible fosse SW-NNE. A section cut through the mound N-S in March 1986 reveals that it was once a rath and that much of its height might have been derived from re-deposited material. (Moore 1988-9) 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. Date of upload: 10 July 2007
