Situated on top of a relatively high E-W ridge. This is not depicted on any edition of the OS 6-inch map. It is a slightly raised rectangular and grass-covered platform (dims of top 31-33m N-S; 21.5-23m E-W) defined by a wide earthen bank (at S: Wth of base 4m; Wth of top 1.4m; int. H 0.2m; ext. H 0.55m) that is largely absent at N. There is no outer fosse and an original entrance is not identified. It remains unplanted in a forest (OSAP 2017). 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: 5 July 2019
