Situated on a slight N-facing slope on the S side of the W-E Nanny River, with the stream c. 550-650m to the N. A three storey, four bay house was built onto the SW wall of the tower house (ME027-013----) in the seventeenth century, and a NW-SE wing was added to its SW end, probably in the 18th century. The original ornate doorway to the seventeenth century wing is at the S end of the SE wall, and on the ground floor a passage leads past four rooms to a doorway in the S tower of the tower house. At the first and second floors the passages are on the NW side of the house but do not communicate with the tower house. 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. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 28 June 2016
