Intermittent monitoring of excavations associated with the Tullamore Broadband Project was carried out from June to December 2003. The project comprised the laying of cables below the ground surface throughout the town of Tullamore and its surrounding infrastructure. The majority of the cable was laid below existing roads and footpaths. The ducts carrying the cables were placed at a standard depth of 0.6m, requiring trench excavation to an average depth of 0.9m. No archaeological material was discovered during these works.
