Situated at the tip of alow W-E spur. This was described in 1970 (SMR file) as a slightly raised oval area (dims 29m N-S; 21m E-W) defined by a scarp and surrounded by a fosse. It had no visible entrance. It was surrounded by relict field banks but the visible profiles had been removed before a fuller record could be made. The cropmark of a large enclosure (diam. c. 85m) defined by a single fosse SW-N-E is visible on OSI aerial images (1995) and on digital Globe (2011-13) and Google Earth (12/07/2013). See the attached enhanced view from Google Earth (12/07/2013) 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. Compiiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 10 July 2007 Amended: 29 October 2021
