In June 1958 human remains were discovered in a mound at Clonbrogan, near Moyglass, Co. Tipperary.262 The remains appear to have been exposed through the action of a stream cutting through the mound, which measured c. 5m high by 27m in diameter. A large number of skeletons were apparently exposed at a depth of 0.6m below the surface of the mound. According to the report received by the NMI, the burials appeared to be lying on a layer of stones. A number of skeletons were visible in situ, and were extended on an east/west axis. No associated artefacts were found with the burials. According to local information, the site is associated with ‘Danes and battle’. Some human remains (1958:169) were deposited by Mr Christopher Daybell of Monkstown, Dublin, but the site was not visited by Museum personnel.
