Monitoring to install a pipeline (feeder main) to provide natural gas from Raheen AGI, Galbally, Co. Limerick, to the outskirts of Tipperary Town was undertaken in December 2010–Febraury 2011. The feeder main ran from an existing Bord Gáis AGI in the townland of Raheen and was predominantly along the R662 road. The trench for the feeder main was excavated along a public road; the pipe trench was generally c. 1.2m deep and c. 0.5m wide in areas that had previously been subject to disturbance. No archaeological features were exposed in the course of the monitoring.
