The development works for an eighteen-hole golf course on a 130-acre site, about two-fifths of which is bogland, on the exposed peninsula of Malin More, Glencolumbkille, Co. Donegal, have been ongoing since 2002. Occasional site inspections of finalising works in the 'Rear of Hotel' section, on a hillside rising from the road through Malin More, the 'Valley' section, through which the road to Glencolumbkille goes, and the 'Eastern' section took place. Works have not yet begun in the 'Western' section. There were no further discoveries to those noted in previous years (Excavations 2002, No. 429; Excavations 2003, No. 423).
