Situated on a level landscape with a N-S section of the Pinkeen River c. 75m to the W. This was described in 1969 (SMR file) as a slightly raised and grass-covered circular area (diam. 42m NW-SE; 39m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (at SE: Wth of base 5.2m; int. H 0.2m; ext. H 1.2m; at NW: Wth of base 9m; int. H 0.9m; ext. H 1.9m), with an external fosse ENE-SE and NW-N (at NW: Wth 2.2m; ext. D 0.3m). There were modern gaps at SW and N but the original entrance (Wth 2m) was at E. Its visible profile had been removed by 1995 (OSAP). 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: 5 November 2021
