Item image
Situated on a level low-lying landscape with the NNE-SSW Ballycarron River, a tributary of the SE-NW Blackwater River, c. 50m to the SE. The cropmarks of two large subrectangular enclosures (dims c. 200m NE-SW, c. 80m NW-SE) defined by what are probably field banks, are visible on an oblique aerial photograph (CUCAP: AVO 73). These are probably fields with a passage between them that is probably a wide drain. They do not appear on any other aerial images. 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: 14 August 2019
