Situated on a fairly level landscape with a small N-S canalised stream c. 10m to the W. This is a grass and rush-covered subcircular area (dims c. 50m N-S; 37m ENE-WSW) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 3.6-5.4m; int. H 0.2-0.5m; ext. H 0.8-1m) with some bushes. There are slight traces of a fosse WSW-WNW and NE-SSE, but an original entrance is not identified. It remains unplanted in a coniferous forest with a wide unplanted buffer outside it (OSAP 2012). 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
