A well defined bank incorporated into the modern field boundaries encloses a level, circular interior 36m in diam. The bank is up to 1 m high & 2.5m wide. It is broken by several small gaps & a modern entrance on the E. A silted outer ditch is just visible around much of the perimeter & in places this is up to 2m wide & 0.5m deep below the outer ground level. A ruined agricultural building of corrugated iron & asbestos occupied the NW quadrant. This is probably a landscaping feature on the site of a rath.
