Located at the crest of a N-facing slope. This is an oval grass-covered area (dims c. 50m N-S; c. 42m E-W) that slopes down to the NW. It is defined by an earthen bank (at SE: Wth of base c. 5m; int. H 1m; ext. H c. 1.5m) and a rounded fosse (at SE: Wth of base c. 5m; Wth of top c. 2m) that is absent W-N. There is a large gap (Wth of base 5.6m) at NE that is probably the original entrance.
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.
