The site of the discovery of a silver armlet at Carrigagulla, Co. Cork, was investigated between 13 and 15 April 2004. No further artefacts were discovered and no archaeological features which might relate to the armlet were noted.

However, it was noted that evidence of a destroyed fulacht fiadh was visible in the field after it had been ploughed. Blackened soil and fragmented burnt stone covering an area of about 25m in diameter was noted. This site was not visible before ploughing and is not recorded in the inventory for this area.
