IAC Ltd undertook an initial constraints study of the archaeological and architectural heritage resource between Clogh and Enniscorthy in order to inform the design of a number of possible routes for the road scheme.

This was followed by a route selection assessment in order to identify the preferred route from an archaeological, architectural and cultural heritage perspective. Once the route had been identified, IAC Ltd undertook an EIA including full assessment of the archaeological and architectural resource within the receiving environment of the road project. This was then combined to include an additional bypass around the north-west of Enniscorthy, which formed a road scheme c. 40km in length. Impact assessment included for both physical and visual impacts.

The project was brought to Oral Hearing and IAC Ltd successfully presented evidence on the archaeological, architectural and cultural heritage aspect of the project. The scheme was granted permission by An Bord Pleanala.
