Situated on a rise in a level landscape with the canalised NW-SE Clonard stream c. 70m to the SW and a smaller N-S stream or drain c. 70m to the E. It is not depicted on any OS map but an aerial photograph from the 1970s (CUCAP: AYR: 33) shows a fosse on top of the rise (dims c. 80m E-W; c. 65m) with an entrance (Wth of base 3m) at SSE. Another fosse or scarp defined the base of the rise N-E-W. The visible profile had been removed by 1985 (SMR file).
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.
