Testing was undertaken in response to a condition of planning permission for a mixed-use development at Gibbethill, Gracedieu, Waterford. The site is in the immediate vicinity of the zone of archaeological potential for a standing stone. A 19th-century house also stands within the development site.

Eight trenches were excavated. Remains of 19th/20th-century agricultural cultivation were identified in Trenches 1, 2 and 5. Areas of 19th/20th-century demolition rubble were discovered in Trenches 4, 6, 7 and 8. No deposits pre-dating the 19th century were identified.
