Circular flat-topped and grass-covered mound (diam. of top 32m; diam. of base 62m; H 4-5.5m) sited on top of a ridge. There is no visible fosse or entrance. A bailey may have been to the S and SW. The parish church of Rathfeigh (ME032-027001-) is c. 100m to the SW, but the mound is so large that it may be a prehistoric mound in origin. 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. Date of revision: 2 June 2016
