Abstract

Irish Archaeological Consultancy Ltd (IAC), funded by the National Roads Authority (NRA) through Kilkenny County Council, undertook an excavation at the site of AR129, Shankill 3 along the proposed N9/N10 Kilcullen to Waterford Scheme, Phase 4 – Knocktopher to Powerstown (Figure 1). The following report describes the results of archaeological excavation at that site. The area was fully excavated by Richard Jennings under Ministerial Direction A032 and Excavation Registration Number E3737 issued by the DOEHLG in consultation with the National Museum of Ireland for IAC. The fieldwork took place between the 29 October and 2 November 2007. Only one archaeological feature was discovered at site Shankill 3, a shallow pit/hearth containing three fills. No finds were recovered. The feature was possibly modern as the charcoal from the main fill appeared quite fresh. The site is undated. The excavated archaeology at Shankill 3 is of minor significance at a local level. It adds some further evidence of past human activity to compliment the more significant sites excavated along the N9/N10 Phase 4 and may be indicative of further previously unknown archaeological features surviving outside the limits of the C.P.O.
