Situated on a slight N-facing slope in a fairly level landscape. This is a slightly raised and grass-covered D-shaped area (dims 144m NE-SW; 120m NW-SE) defined by an earthen bank (at SW: Wth of base 5m; int. H 0.5m; ext. H 1.2m) with some bushes, and an external fosse or drain (at NE: Wth of base 1.5m; ext. D 0.5m) NE-S-W. The straight side is at NW where the enclosure was probably truncated. The only entrance (Wth 3.5m) is at SW. 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: 22 November 2021
