March 1963 human remains were discovered in digging the foundation trenches for a house (Feeley 2001, 30-2, No. 6). The field in which the burials occurred has a curvilinear boundary on its E side, and it is possible that this was the original boundary of a cemetery. A small excavation (E001128) was undertaken by E. Prendergast in 1963. Portions of a number of in situ burials were visible in the section faces of the foundation trenches. All of these burials were extended and aligned W-E. At least seven individuals, four males and three females were identified (Cahill & Sikora 2011, vol. 2, 385-387).
