Located on a slight S-facing slope with a NE-SW section of the Skane stream c. 70m to the S. This is a raised circular grass-covered platform (diam. 25m N-S; 23m E-W) defined by a rounded fosse (Wth of top 5-6.8m; int. D ½-1.5m; ext. D 0.1-0.3m) SW-NE but the perimeter is reduced to a scarp (H 1m) SE-SW, A berm (Wth 6.8-8m) separates this fosse from an external fosse (Wth 2m; D 0.1-0.2m) SW-N. There is no visible entrance and the perimeter is truncated by a N-S stream NE-SE. Archaeological testing (16E0203) by P. D. Sweetman c. 180m to the NNE produced no related material (excavations.ie 2016:661).
