Situated on the S bank of a NW-SE section of the Cavan Blackwater River and c. 120m NW of the site of St Mary’s Augustinian abbey (ME025-024----). Archaeological testing (98E0184) by F. Reilly on the line of a new road (dims c. 110m N-S c. 40m E-W) encountered a modern overburden (D up to 6m) in seven test trenches which covered post-medieval deposits. In trench 6 a cobbled surface (Wth 1.3m) was bounded by a stone kerb at the N side and a slightly later E-W wall (Wth 0.6m) on the other. South of the wall was the NE end of a second wall (Wth 0.6m) that survived largely intact (H 1.35m) beneath the overburden but stopped c. 1.2m short of the E-W wall. The E-W wall is thought to be part of a lane that is depicted on the 1836 edition of the OS 6-inch map.
