Pre-development testing was carried out for a proposed hotel site at Rathmullan, Drogheda, Co. Meath, in advance of an application for planning permission. Testing using a mechanical digger fitted with a 1.5m ditching bucket was carried out over a period of two and a half days. Eleven trenches, each 12m apart, were excavated, representing a little over 10% of the area to be developed. A number of furrows, drains and old field boundaries were uncovered. All were of post-medieval date and none were deemed to be of archaeological interest.
