Item image
Situated on a rise in a fairly level landscape. A large embanked circular enclosure is depicted on the 1836 (ext. diam. c. 85m NW-SE; c. 75m NE-SW) and 1908 (ext. diam. c. 80-85m) editions of the OS 6-inch map, with a NW-SE road circumventing it on the SW side SE-W on both editions. It was described in 1969 (SMR file) as a circular area (int. diam. 68m ENE-WSW; 66m NW-SE) defined by the remains of a fosse (Wth of top 7.5m; int. D 0.8m at NW to 2.2m at SE; ext. D 0.9m at NW to 2m at SE) and circumvented by the road SE-WNW. There was no identifiable entrance. 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 upload: 10 July 2007 Amended: 29 October 2021, 24 March 2023
