Two palisade trenches (L 58m) 8m to 11m apart recovered in excavation to W of main passage-tomb (ME019-030001-). Post-holes and packing stones are evident. The area enclosed, if the trenches were completely circular (and they may have been destroyed elsewhere by ploughing), would have max. diam. of c. 120m (Eogan 1984, 219-27; Eogan and Roche 1997, 6).
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.
