The following 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. Date of upload/revision: 10 July 2007 Hugh de Lacy built a ditched earthwork at Trim in 1172 (Orpen 1911, 338). This may have been a ringwork castle rather than a motte. Excavation by P. D. Sweetman (PRIA 1978, 133-40, 185-8) revealed wide fosse with thirteenth-century material surrounding keep (ME036-048004-).
