Carlow Main Drainage Scheme, Carlow Town, 2010-2012



Carlow 1The Carlow Main Drainage Scheme is situated in Carlow town and extends throughout the town (CW007-018) and suburbs of the town, which is on the east side of the River Barrow and is prone to flooding. Licence to monitor the works (10E0175) was granted in May 2010.

During July 2010, as the contractors prepared to extend their pipeline through Kennedy Street, an update of the present licence was applied for to excavate remains expected to be found in this area. An 18th century cobbled surface was found in several places in Kennedy Street during works here (Plate 1).

Plate 1: Cobbling of probable 18th century date found along Kennedy Street, facing west.
