Situated at the crest of a S-facing slope with a WNW-ESE section of the River Boyne c. 250m to the S. A church may have been founded by St Patrick at what later became St Patrck’s parish church (ME036-048012-) in Trim. There is no physical evidence of this but a section recorded in archaeological monitoring (96E0175) cut through what was probably an E-W fosse or ditch (Wth c. 5m; D 1.1m) under Loman St just W of the graveyard (ME036-048051-). It had two clay fills but produced no artefacts (Meenan 1996, 6; 1997), and raises the tantalizing possibility that it is an a-ceramic and pre Anglo-Norman feature.
