Situated on a fairly level landscape. Aerial photographs from the 1970s (GSIAP: O 23, 24) show upstanding relict field banks covering about 100 acres (c. 36 ha). The fields are fairly large and rectangular (dims c. 100m x c. 50-70m) and aligned NNE-SSW with the local trend of field banks, or perpendicular to it, but they had been reclaimed by 1984. They were probably part of an unmapped post-medieval field system. No house sites or plots can be identified in the available aerial images. 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 upload: 10 July 2007 Amended: 4 May 2022
