Visited by RCAHMS (PJD) 20 October 1997 <1>

In February 2012 it was noted that the mound has been truncated to c.8m along its NE to SW axis due to animal erosion. The field clearance noted by RCAHMS is still evident. The site was marked off with a 10m buffer zone in advance of works for a new overhead line. <2>
