Monitoring of groundworks associated with the construction of a dormer dwelling and associated site works was carried out on 7 March 2003, to the rear of 15-17 Davis Street, Tipperary. The development was within the zone of archaeological potential for Tipperary (SMR 67:4).

The stratigraphy encountered consisted of rubble fill, within which was the foundation of an outbuilding that had just been demolished on the site. Below the rubble was topsoil, below which were an orange/brown and mid-brown friable silt loam. The rubble fill and topsoil contained modern artefacts.
