Located towards the bottom of a SW-facing slope, it was known locally as ‘Craobh’. This is an oval grass and scrub-covered area (dims 46m WNW-ESE; 32m NNE-SSW) defined by earthen bank that is reduced to a low scarp SE-SSW. There is no visible fosse or identifiable original entrance. It is within a rectilinear enclosure (dims 58m N-S; 54m E-W) defined by low scarp, which might have been created by ploughing. The rath is at the centre of a relict field system (ME027-032001-) that is only visible as the cropmarks of drains on Apple Maps, which utilises a survey conducted by Bluesky International during June 2018. The field system was first reported by Noel Meehan.
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.
