Nine souterrains (ME019-030051-/030059-) have been recovered in excavation at site of passage-tomb complex (Eogan 1984, 7; Eogan 2012, 86). These are associated with early Christian occupation largely on E side of mound. Three souterrains (ME019-030051-/052-/053-) have been published; two of these had simple passages and beehive chambers (Eogan and Byrne 1968, 357, 375) while the third was Y-shaped in plan (Eogan 1974, 89-91). This monument is souterrain No. 3 located along W kerb of passage tomb (ME019-003001-) as shown on plan (Eogan 1974, 17). 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. See attached pdf plan of monument taken from Eogan 1974 showing location of souterrain No. 3 Date of upload/revision: 06 November 2013
