Located in a field known as the 'Castle field' in the townland of Hollymount. Comprises a large flat-topped mound (diam. c 25m). Referred to locally as the 'old fort' and that a 'tunnel leads from the mound all the way to Herbertstown' (pers. comm. Mr Colin Byrne, Briarleas, County Meath). It is visible as a circular, grass-covered area defined by a broad bank feature (Wth c. 10m) and an outer fosse feature (max. ext. diam. c. 55m) on Bing aerial images (c. 2013). It may be a ringwork castle.
