Three test-trenches were excavated to the north of the site during the assessment of a proposed retail and commercial development at 15 Church Street, Dundalk, Co. Louth. The area to the south of the site had been disturbed by the construction of the basement associated with the original structure and by a number of modern service ducts and trenches which would have destroyed any potential archaeological deposits that may have been present.

A layer of dark-brown loam lay over the entire site and lay directly above the natural grey clay and gravel. No archaeological features or deposits were exposed and all finds recovered were 19th-20th century in date.
