Situated on a slight NE-facing slope. This is a slightly raised circular and grass-covered area (diam. 29.5m N-S; 28.5m E-W) defined by a slight earthen bank (Wth of base 6m; int. H 0.2m at ENE to 0.4m at WSW; ext. H 1-1.1m) and a slight outer fosse (Wth of top 5.5-6m; ext. D 0.1m). There are numerous gaps in the bank but the original entrance is probably at S (Wth of base 2.1m). Topsoil from the interior may have been removed at E and S. 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: 10 January 2022
