Monitoring of topsoil removal was carried out within the grounds of Gowrie House, 34 Upper Glenageary Road, Co. Dublin in response to a planning condition relating to the construction of eight houses within the grounds of Gowrie House, a protected structure.

Frequent modern material was present, both in spreads and deposited in pits across the area and comprised domestic rubbish including glass, iron, delph, clay pipe and fire rake-out (coal/ash etc.)
