In May 1978 human remains and some textile were discovered during turf-cutting in a bog. The body lay extended in a supine position. the remains were found to represent a young adult female. Two different types of textile were found associated with the body, and the weave of one was identical to a cloak from Meenybradden, Co. Donegal, and that from Killerry, Co. Sligo, suggesting a late medieval date for this burial. A sample was submitted for radiocarbon dating and yielded a calibrated date of AD 1400-1660 (Cahill & Sikora 2011, Vol 2, 283-287).
