Situated on a knoll in a low-lying undulating landscape with higher ridges all around. This is a raised and slightly domed (H 0.3-0.7m), grass-covered and subcircular area (dims 28m NNE-SSW; 22.7m NW-SE) defined by an earthen bank (at NW: Wth of base 5m; int. H 0.1m; ext. H 1.4m) with some bushes that is largely reduced to a scarp (at SE: Wth 3.8m; H 1.4m). There is a no visible fosse and the original entrance is not identified. There is a small quarry in the interior at W. 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
