Hags Head, Co. Clare - July 2015

TVAS were commissioned by Clare County Council to assess the archaeological impact of fencing at the Napoleonic period signal tower at Hags Head, Liscannor. In its current state, the tower constitutes a dangerous structure as it stands next to the existing coastal walkway between Liscannor and Doolin via the Cliffs of Moher. The fencing will protect both the public and the ruins, which also include the remains of an Emergency Period look-out post.

Test pits dug by Graham Hull and Joe McCooey didn't reveal any archaeology, but the views were spectacular.

Doolin Heritage Weekend - June 21st - 22nd 2015

At this year's heritage event Kate Taylor gave a talk on recent excavations in Liscannor whilst Joe McCooey was responsible for an experimental firing of a fulacht fia, a replica of one from the Liscannor excavation.
