Located on the broad summit of Coolderry Hill. This is a raised D-shaped and grass-covered area (dims 58m NNE-SW; c. 50m NW-SE) that slopes down to the SE defined by an earthen bank and outer fosse N-SE, with an outer bank ESE-S. A NW-SE field bank truncates the monument at SW and a NNE-SSW field bank truncates it at W. The original entrance (Wth of base 4m) and causeway (Wth of top 6m; H 0.4m) are at E. 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: 12 August 2019
