Glebe South and Darcystown, Balrothery, Co. Dublin Balrothery Excavations Vol. 2 by Judith Carroll, Frank Ryan and Kenneth Wiggins published in 2008


balrothery-2 A series of excavations took place in Balrothery, Co. Dublin, between 2000 and 2005. Three of these important prehistoric burial sites in the townland of Darcystown and Glebe South and are described in this volume.

The burials show continuity of prehistoric burial from the early Bronze Age, into the Iron Age, but the main concentrations of burial are dated to the Late Bronze Age into the Iron Age and early medieval periods. There is a Late Bronze Age site in Darcystown 1 which is coeval with burnt mounds and a Late Bronze Age ring ditch burial site in Darcystown 2. In Glebe South, an Iron Age ring ditch burial site continued to be used into the early medieval period, when it was superimposed by long stone cist burials.
