(Fig. 8a) is from the William Wakeman Collection curated by Sligo County Library. Thomas Cummins, University College Dublin, kindly supplied images of the cliff face (2005 details in Figs 5 and 6) taken during his Ph.D fieldwork, and Ciaran Davis supplied images of the cliff face from 2015.A geophysical survey of the site in 2000 was carried out by GeoArc Ltd Surveys, and excavation since 2012 was assisted by staff and student volunteers from the Institute of Technology, Sligo: Gareth Boyle, Seamus Canty, Federica Casari, Ciarán Davis, Eithne Davis, Chantal Doyle, Elizabeth Dunne, Michael Feeney, Conor Foster, John Langan, Dan Lonergan, Edward Lynch, Sam Moore and Louise Murray, as well as by community member Seán Gallagher. He, along with other local residents Dominic Currid, Donal Gilroy and Leo Leyden, and other members of the Grange and Armada Development Association have been active both in reporting storm damage and rescuing artefacts eroded from the cliff face. The work would not have been possible without funding from the Heritage Council, the National Monuments Service, IT Sligo Capacity Building Fund and the Royal Irish Academy. The authors’ work on this paper was supported by the Centre for Environmental Research Innovation and Sustainability, Institute of Technology, Sligo, and Transport Infrastructure Ireland.
