About the 2022 Excavations

Archaeological Dig at Tawnaghmore

The 2022 excavation will take place at Tamnaghmore, a short walk from our campus in Dooagh at the western end of Achill Island. This nucleated settlement of 16 dwellings likely dates to the late/post medieval period (AD1380-1900) and appears on maps dated to 1809 and 1838, but little is known about its period of occupation or abandonment. We look forward to uncovering the history of this enigmatic site.
