HC Deb 16 June 1892 vol 5 c1265
MR. CAREW (Kildare, N.)

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that quite recently certain road contractors, while excavating for gravel in the ancient moat of Rathmore in County Kildare, came upon human remains, which showed that the moat was used as a cemetery, and that several skeletons were exhumed and left exposed; and whether he will order the moat to be enclosed, and thus prevent any further desecration of the place?


I am informed that about three weeks ago some very old human bones were found at the place mentioned. The County Inspector is in communication with the contractors and with the tenant and landlord of the land with a view to the place being preserved from further interference.
