Situated on a rise in a gently undulating landscape. This is an oval grass and scrub-covered area (dims 39m N-S; 26m E-W) defined by a scarp (H 2m at W to 3.2m at E) with some trees and a rounded fosse (at W: Wth of top 7.5m; ext. D 0.6m) that is separated by a berm (at W: Wth 4m) from the base of the scarp. There is an old quarry inside the perimeter at N and a broad inner scarp (Wth 7m; H 1m) extends NE-E. There is an entrance ramp at S. 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
