In the Vale of Tralee
Among the discoveries were the remains of a building in Manor East erected by some of the first farmers to settle in the River Lee Valley, as well as circular houses of the Bronze Age in Ballingowan, Knockawaddra Middle and Ballynabrennagh, and Iron Age cremation burials in Manor East and Ballinorig West. Of particular note was the monumental avenue of timber posts uncovered in Ballingowan which may have been the site of sacred ceremonial processions during the Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age.
