The lost down of Dunlace, which was razed to the ground in the 1614 Irish rebellion, has been found.

Archaeologists have said that because it was abandoned, jewellery, pottery, stone and wooden homes and even a road are still very well preserved.

The town is believed to have first emerged in the Ulster Plantation around the early 1600s.

Environment Minister Alex Attwood said that the history attached to the dig was “overwhelming”.
