Situated at the NE end of a short NE-SW ridge in a low-lying landscape, with the N-S Athboy River c. 60m to the E. This is an oval grass-covered area (dims 49m NNE-SSW; 35m WNW-ESE) defined by a grass-covered earthen bank with some bushes across the ridge S-W and by a scarp elsewhere, with an external fosse (Wth of top 4.5m; Wth of base 3.2m) and outer bank (Wth of base 4m; ext. H 0.8m) NW-N. There is a ramp entrance (Wth of base 2.2m) at NE, which may be modern. 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: 28 February 2019
