Situated on a locally prominent E-W ridge. This is an oval grass-covered area (dims 44m NW-SE; 35m NE-SW) defined by the lip of a bank and a rounded fosse (at NE: Wth of top 6.25m; Wth of base c. 2m; int. D c. 2m; ext. D c. 1.5m) that only survives N-S-W. The entrance is a low causeway (Wth of top 3.4m; H 0.5m) at SSW, and the inner edge of the fosse has been quarried SW-W in the distant past. 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 revision: 13 August 2019
