Testing was carried out on behalf of Waterford City Council in advance of the construction of the new N25 Waterford Bypass. Fifteen test-trenches were excavated within three fields at Site 6. The sod and topsoil measured an average of 0.4m in thickness and lay directly above the natural orange clay and stone. No archaeological features or deposits were exposed and no finds were recovered.
