An area of about 15 ha (c. 37 acres) has remnants of a system of rectangular fields (dims c. 100-170m x 10-60m) defined by banks and ditches. The fields extend off to the SW of the motte and bailey (ME048-011----) and the deserted settlement (ME048-010----).
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.
