Located in a relatively low-lying level landscape. This is a slightly raised and grass-covered subcircular area (dims 37m N-S; 32m E-W) defined by the slight lip of a grass-covered earthen bank (Wth 5-6m; int. H 0.2m; ext. H 0.9-1.1m) and an external fosse (at E: Wth of top 9m; Wth of base 3m; ext. D 0.3m) that has been re-cut as a drain (at W: Wth of top 4.8m; Wth of base 1m; ext. D 0.7m) S-W-NE. There is an entrance (Wth of base 2m) at NE and there are some bushes on the bank. 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: 27 August 2019
