A one-week preliminary excavation began on 1st July 1991 on the recommendation of an E.I.S. report prior to the proposed EuroTechnopole Park development. The 1 .3m high x 2m wide linear bank produced 18th and 19th-century pottery and is of little archaeological significance. The excavation was funded by Shannon Development.
