A solid-core sampling project in the Castle Barracks yard, Enniskillen, was undertaken, funded by DOE(NI).

Five 100mm diameter cores were taken on a line east of the castle in order to determine the archaeological potential of the area, which faces possible development for Fermanagh County Museum.

Initial results suggest the survival of up to 3m of archaeological deposits, including waterlogged organic material and demolition debris from structures which formerly occupied the site.
