Monitoring took place of the laying of a gas pipe and water main along parts of Brackenstown and Naul roads by Bord G‡is Äireann. The route of the pipe passed through the constraint circles of a motte-andbailey site, a possible bridge site and a mound. The trenches to accommodate the pipes were cut into the road. No archaeological structures or deposits were encountered during the monitoring of the laying of the pipeline. For the majority of the length of the trench this can be attributed to the fact that the trench stayed within the fabric of the road and did not reach undisturbed natural strata.
