Site AR34, Ballyerk
Additional excavation was carried out in October 2006, in advance of the construction of the M8/N8 Cullahill to Cashel road improvement scheme. Prior assessment and centreline test-trenching was carried out in 2005 by Bernice Molloy (Excavations 2005, No. 1388, A027/006). An area of 400m2 was topsoil-stripped around a shallow post-hole and an area of in situ burning was revealed in testing. The landowner indicated that considerable tree clearance had been carried out in the field in recent years. It is likely that these features are associated with this field clearance rather than archaeological in nature.
