In October 1951 human remains were discovered by workmen engaged in laying sewerage pipes in Castle Street, Trim. The bones recovered comprised three skulls and various other remain representing numerous individuals. In the lowest burial level some fragments of charred wood, identified as oak was found with the remains. There were no associated finds so the date is uncertain (Cahill & Sikora, 2011, vol. 2, 403-5).
