Ballyhanna

The Ballyhanna Research Project is a cross-border academic partnership between Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) and the Institute of Technology, Sligo (ITS) which is funded by the National Roads Authority (NRA). The main aim of the Ballyhanna Research Project was to facilitate scientific research on the Ballyhanna skeletal collection primarily through bioarchaeology, bio-molecular science and analytical chemistry. The Ballyhanna skeletal collection is a unique skeletal collection as it is the largest Medieval Gaelic skeletal collection to have been excavated in Ireland. The results from the Ballyhanna Research Project are currently being compiled and will be presented in a forthcoming NRA monograph.
