Situated on a hillock in an undulating low-lying landscape. It is not depicted on any map but a circular wood is depicted as occupying the hill on the 1836 edition of the OS 6-inch map while a crescent-shaped wood lies around it SW-N-SE on the 1912 edition. This is a circular grass-covered mound (diam. of base c. 30m; H 1.8m at S to 3m at N) with some trees. The wood is bordered by a bank and outer ditch, and a N-S field bank with ditches on either side runs over the mound.
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.
