The client was constructing an extension to a house at Ballykeerogemore, Campile, Co. Wexford. Part of an outbuilding attached to an extension was demolished and the new extension was slotted in between the existing building and the remaining two-roomed shed.
The house is within 40m of a medieval bawn wall and the ruins of a 17th-century fortified house. Monitoring of the demolition of the section of modern outbuilding and of all groundworks was recommended. Apart from a single fragment of possible dressed stone recovered from the fabric of the demolished wall, nothing of archaeological significance was noted. The stone was photographed and left on-site in the care of the property owner. The fragment was not especially diagnostic, but may represent a portion of internal window jamb with splay. Several architectural fragments were noted in the exterior fabric of the other standing structures of the farmyard, including two windowsill stones and two or possibly three corbels.
