Flat-topped and grass-covered oval mound (dims of top 39m N-S; 23m E-W; dims of base 85m N-S; 70m E-W; H 3.5m at W to 8m generally) with some scrub has an irregular berm (Wth c. 10m) around the base SE-W-N. From S-NW the berm is defined by a wide bank (Wth c. 14m; H 1m) and could be interpreted as a possible bailey. 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 revision: 2 June 2016
