Situated on a rise in an undulating landscape. A lintelled burial (dims 1.7m E-W; 0.5m N-S) lined with thin slabs set upright and covered by six lintels was discovered in removing topsoil for a driveway in 1988. It was excavated by Mary Cahill of the National Museum of Ireland assisted by Niall Brady, and the human remains were examined by Barra Ó Donnabháin. It had a W-E orientation and packing stones and support stones were also recorded. It contained the inhumed remains of a young adult female (age 18-25), and a sample yielded a calibrated C14 date of AD 430-670. While no other graves were recovered the recorded burial may be one of a cemetery. (Cahill 2011) Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 26 February 2019
