Following on from testing in 2002 (Excavations 2002, No. 1965), monitoring of the excavation of services and two relieving sumps for the removal of groundwater was undertaken in July 2003. The site, c. 22m by 28m, lies immediately behind the main eastern street frontage in the village on a south-facing slope just north of the Wicklow Arms and immediately outside the protected area surrounding an early ecclesiastical site (SMR 13:4). Nothing of archaeological significance was found.
