A monitoring evaluation took place on 31 May and 1 June 2011 of the digging of foundations for a replacement dwelling at No. 90 Glenkeen Road, Aghadowey.  The only archaeological feature uncovered was a post-medieval ditch, possibly a boundary ditch, which ran roughly east–west across the site and yielded 17th- and 18th-century pottery.  Nothing else of archaeological significance was uncovered on the site.
