We reanalyze the Swift XRT observation of IGR J17419-2802 taken on 2005 October 3 (ATel #617) and obtain a refined X-ray position of the source. The source is located at R.A. = 17h41m56.0s, Dec = -28:01:54.5 (J2000) with an estimated uncertainty of 3.6 arcsec (90% confidence radius). This position includes the latest XRT boresight correction. The refined position is 5.5 arcsec from the previous XRT position (ATel #617). We note that one 2MASS object with K=12.2 is within the refined error circle.
