The development site is located c. 100m to the north of the zone of archaeological potential surrounding Cork city. Testing was carried out following the demolition of an existing building and prior to the construction of a new retail outlet. However, following the removal of the existing building the ground levels throughout the site were found to have been extensively reduced below the natural subsoil level. A single trench was opened across the base of the demolished building and this confirmed that the levels on the development site had been reduced to the sterile natural boulder clay.
