Planning permission was sought for an extension to an existing dwelling-house at Aghanagh, Ballinafad, Co. Sligo. Pre-construction testing was undertaken, as the development occurred within the constraint area of ecclesiastical remains.

Trenches were opened along the foundation lines, extending 8m east-west by 5m. They were excavated to a depth of c. 1.7m, into natural, orange gravel. No evidence of archaeology was uncovered.
