This development was located at the southern periphery of the Airport Business Park, to the south-east of Waterford Airport. The site is located close to Ballylough, the focus of the Ballylough field-walking project of the 1980s, which demonstrated Late Mesolithic activity in East Waterford.

The mid-brown, lightly grassed, silty topsoil varied in depth from 0.3 to 0.5m across the site. Beneath the topsoil was an orange/brown silty clay natural with occasional stones. Occasional pockets of orange and yellow natural clays were also observed. No finds or features of archaeological significance were uncovered.
