Situated on a rise in an undulating landscape. This is a raised and grass-covered subcircular area (dims 41m NE-SW; 36m NW-SE) defined by an earthen bank separated by a fosse from an outer earthen bank with some bushes. There are traces of a third bank SW-NW incorporated in a NNE-SSW field bank. The widened entrance through the inner (Wth of base 10m) and outer (Wth of base 10m) banks is at ESE. The E quadrant of the interior has old quarry pits. 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: 27 February 2019
