Situated on a slight S-facing slope. This is a raised circular and grass-covered area (diam. 55.5m ENE-WSW; 51.5m NNW-SSE) defined by an overgrown earthen bank with an external fosse. There is a second outer bank that is incorporated into a field bank with an external fosse WSW-N-E. A berm (at E: Wth 12m) W-N-E separates the outer bank from the inner fosse N-SSE (max. ext. diam. 107m ENE-WSW). The entrance in the inner bank with the remains of a causeway across the fosse is at E. 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
