South Munster is a large territorial area and it has many souterrains beneath its surface. As has been happening over the past 300 years or so more will come to light in the future either as a result of agricultural or engineering activity across the landscape. It is important to keep building the collective record for these sites and this is achieved by adding information about the rediscovery of sites previously known and those which are newly discovered. The record provides the basic data for scholarly research into the nature of these monuments, their history and that of the localities in which they are found. When sites are discovered it is important to notify heritage professionals such as county archaeologists as soon as possible so that a professional record can be made of the site and added to the national SMR database. It would be useful for the purposes of the research on this website to be made aware of ongoing discoveries.
