Testing was carried out on the site of a proposed development at Friary Road, Naas, Co. Kildare, on 24 April 2003, prior to the construction of an apartment block comprising sixteen apartments with ancillary car-parking. The site lies within the zone of archaeological potential for Naas.

Four trenches were inserted by machine. The overall impression from the stratigraphy within them was that levels had been significantly reduced over the entire area of the site. No archaeological features of artefacts were encountered during testing.
