Located on a shelf towards the bottom of a NW-facing slope. This is a circular grass-covered area (diam. 30.5m ENE-WSW; 29.5m NNE-SSE) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 5-6m; int. H 0.6-1m; ext. H 1.8-2m) with some bushes, and an outer fosse (Wth of top 6-8m; ext. D 0.4-0.6m) SSW-N. There is a gap (Wth of base 2.8m) in the perimeter at NNW but the original entrance is likely to be that (Wth of base 2.3m) at S. Standing stone (ME002-040001-) is c. 40m to the N. 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: 31 August 2018
