Redmond Square, Wexford
Monitoring of demolition, ground clearance and piling was undertaken at a site opposite the Redmond Place monument, on the south-eastern side of Redmond Square towards the northern limit of the medieval town of Wexford.
Monitoring uncovered 18th- and 19th-century building rubble and probable reclamation material overlying sterile silty clay. The site would appear to be located outside the natural, and probably medieval, line of the Wexford Harbour shoreline, which Edward Bourke, in his 1990 excavation of the Wexford main drainage, identified as being 50m to the west of the site 'at the junction of Slaney Street and Selskar Street' (Excavations 1990, No. 121).
