Abbey Square, Enniscorthy
Urban medieval
No archaeological strata were encountered during excavation of four test trenches. The overburden consisted largely of loose rubble made up of stone and red brick. Foundation walls of red brick reached a level of 2.64m OD in places. The level at which boulder clay was met was an average of 2.72m OD. The site, despite its name, is situated further north than the Abbey established in 1459. The Abbey site is located in the area of Lett's Brewery where the original bell is said to remain today.
