Significant archaeological remains have been found at several sites in Laois during preparations for road construction. Leaflets detailing archaeological remains uncovered before and during construction of recent roads have been produced by Transport Infrastructure Ireland.
Leaflets which are available to download from Transport Infrastructure Ireland, or which can be ordered from Laois Heritage Office include:
- Archaeological finds on the Heath Mayfield section of the M7 (Portlaoise Bypass)
- Archaeology along the routes of the M7 and M8 Motorways in Laois
More detailed articles on several of the Laois excavations and research results from other parts of the country are available in the magazine “Seanda” produced by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (formerly the National Roads Authority).
