The plantation in which it stood has been reclaimed in this area and a small scatter of stones indicates the monument. Listed as a passage-tomb (Herity 1974, 234). (Conwell 1873, 48) The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987).
