Item image
Situated on a hillock in an undulating low-lying landscape. This is a subcircular grass-covered area (dims 27m NE-SW; 24m NW-SE) that slopes down to the NE (H 1m). It is defined by a low grass-covered earthen bank (Wth of base 3.5-4m; int. H 0.2m; ext. H 1m), with traces of an outer fosse (Wth of base 1m; ext. D 0.3m) SW-W. The original entrance is not identified, and the perimeter is slightly truncated by a NE-SW field bank at SE. 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: 10 January 2019
