Situated on a slight rise in a gently undulating landscape with slightly higher ground to the NW. This is a raised and domed, grass-covered oval area (dims c. 80m NW-SE; c. 63m NE-SW) defined by a scarp (at N: H c. 1.3m), with an outer fosse (at N: Wth of base c. 1.5m; ext. D 0.7m) NW-N continued as a drain N-E. An original entrance is not identified but there is a modern entrance at SE.
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.
