Situated at the S edge of a low ridge in a low-lying landscape. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 52m NNW-SSE; 50m ENE-WSW) defined by an earthen bank and hedge with an outer fosse. There is an outer bank ESE-SSW only. There is a wide gap in the inner bank at ESE but a partly stone-lined entrance (Wth of base 2.3m) without a causeway at NNE is more likely to be the original entrance.
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.
