Situated on a knoll c. 200m ENE of the summit of Dalystown Hill. This was described in 1970 (SMR file) as a subcircular grass-covered area (dims 26.5m N-S; 21.5m E-W) defined by a slight earthen bank largely reduced to a scarp (at E: Wth 3.6m; H 1.6m) with an outer fosse reduced to a berm (at E: Wth 2m) E-SW, but elsewhere the perimeter melded into the natural slope. There was a possible entrance at ENE. The concentric enclosure (ME041-010----) is c. 200m to the WSW, but this rath had been removed by 1995 (OSAP). 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: 9 August 2019
