Located on the summit of the ENE-WSW Redmountain ridge. In 1935 a cist with an inhumation was discovered c. 1m below the sod in building a water reservoir. It was destroyed before it could be investigated but was described locally as formed of slabs of slate placed upright against the remains, but one end was destroyed and it is not known if the burial was covered in slabs. The extended inhumation was aligned W-E, but there were no grave goods. (Cahill and Sikora 2011, vol. 2, 456-7) Archaeological testing (07E0840) by M. Seaver on the line of a trench extending E from the water-treatment plant produced no related material ( 2007:1391). Further archaeological testing (15E0379) by G. McLoughlin just E of the water tanks had a similar result ( 2015:116). 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 upload: 10 July 2007 Amended: 22 December 2021
