In July 1990 human remains were discovered during construction works at the townland of Kilmore Big, Clonshaugh Industrial Estate, Coolock, Co. Dublin.81 The discovery was reported to the Gardaí, who visited the site, removed some of the remains, and then reported it to the NMI. A site investigation was carried out by Nessa O’Connor. According to O’Connor’s report, two other burials were visible in the section of the trench, apparently oriented west/east. The workers on the site confirmed that no associated artefacts or grave structures were found with the burials. The remains were handed over to the coroner, and were not acquired by the Museum.
